Based on the physical evidence and interviews from the scene, Henley was arrested and charged. The Sheriff’s Office today refused to release its report regarding the incident because the report was not yet approved by the supervisor on scene during the initial investigation, Sheriff’s Office spokesman Sgt. Ted Roy said. “As soon as it’s approved, it will be released. But that’s not likely to happen until Monday or Tuesday,” he said. As of this afternoon is was not clear if Henley would be placed on paid or unpaid leave until the charges are resolved... “If he is found guilty, he could lose his job and his retirement. And he won’t be able to carry a weapon, which means he couldn’t be a law enforcement officer... The penalties a person in law enforcement faces are greater than if he worked in another career”... Henley’s first court appearance is scheduled for Sunday morning. He will remain in jail until that time because state law requires no bond be set in domestic-violence-related charges until a hearing with a judge, Roy said. [Full article here]
