I must confess that this is the first time I learned about this case. Previously I heard only positive references regarding Burleigh County. The investigators are involved with other responsibilities within the Sheriff’s Department, such as education, training, public speaking, negotiations, emergency response, and man tracking, making for a true team effort when providing services to the citizens of Burleigh County. Now I’m really impressed. We’ll see what will come of it.

Those are some strong allegations. A conspiracy with the State Attorneys Office? We’ll see how this pans out and I’m very interested to see as well.

If that really happened, this case should thoroughly be investigated.
