Clark County Sheriff's merit board demotes captain amid investigation

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Clark County sheriff's officer was demoted from captain to lieutenant after she admitted mishandling evidence, according to a press release. 

The sheriff's department merit board approved the change for Racheal Lee Tuesday.

Sheriff Jamey Noel says Lee did not commit any criminal acts and noted her past, "commendable" service as a factor in her favor in the case.

Lee was accused of holding evidence in cases she investigated as a detective.

She is also a former public information officer for the department.
