"...I have no tolerance for misconduct by anyone sworn to uphold the law and, as a result, have immediately terminated Jason Bill’s employment with the Cobb County Sheriff's Office..."
I don't know what kind of a man Cobb County Sheriff Neil Warren is, or what kind of a husband. I don't know his history or what people say. I do know that the SAME DAY that Deputy Jason Anthony Bill was arrested for violent crimes against a female victim - with the information that was clear to the Sheriff - the Deputy was fired. Articles coming out the day after Deputy Bill's arrest already were calling him a "former" deputy.
Kudo's to Sheriff Warren

It was with a profound sense of outrage and betrayal that I learned of the actions and subsequent charges lodged against Deputy Jason Bill. This type of conduct is reprehensible under any circumstances but even more so when committed by a law enforcement officer. I have no tolerance for misconduct by anyone sworn to uphold the law and, as a result, have immediately terminated Jason Bill’s employment with the Cobb County Sheriff's Office.
This is indeed a sad day for the Cobb County Sheriff's Office and law enforcement in general. It is particularly disheartening when a law enforcement officer breaks trust with his co-workers and with those he is sworn to protect. We have many dedicated and honorable employees who give unselfishly of themselves on a daily basis to serve the citizens of this County. Our deepest condolences are with the alleged victim of this offense.
The investigation into this incident is on-going by the Cobb County Police Department and I have the utmost confidence in their ability and commitment to bring it to a successful conclusion. The Cobb County Sheriff's Office will assist in any manner necessary and will work to insure that any criminal violations are vigorously prosecuted.

When two Cobb County police officers found the victim, she had "visible marks" on her face and "significant bruising" on her legs.
Bill, of Marietta, is currently being held at the Cobb County Adult Detention Center on charges of rape, aggravated sodomy, aggravated assault, kidnapping, false imprisonment and battery...
