In a statement, Christian told the news station, in part: “I am far from a perfect human. I chose to end a long-term extramarital relationship abruptly. This person, out of anger and hurt, chose to go to Sheriff (Ron) Freeman with a list of alleged misconduct on my part.
“The (internal) investigation lacks my side of the story and it makes me out to be something I am not.”
A third-party law enforcement expert said the former deputy could face charges. According to Brent Brown, chairman and CEO of security consulting firm Chesley Brown, Christian’s former casework also should be scrutinized for mistakes.
