The Shiawassee County Sheriff was served on Thursday with a lawsuit filed by a former Jail employee. Although the lawsuit claims that the former employee was terminated because she was a whistleblower, this claim is meritless and a spurious attack on the Sheriff and will be defended vigorously by the Sheriff’s Office, a release from the Sheriff's Office reads.

Sheriff Brian BeGole outlines alleged discrepencies in the Plaintiff's claim point by point in the release.

"First, at no time did the Plaintiff ever complain to the Sheriff or the Sheriff’s Command regarding the misuse or abuse of the LEIN System by any employee, much less by Special Deputy Safi. This claim is pure fiction.

 Second, a recent thorough investigation of the use of the LEIN at the Sheriff’s Office confirmed that at no time did Special Deputy Safi ever use the LEIN, or attempt to use the LEIN, much less use the LEIN for personal or inappropriate reasons. This claim is pure fiction as well. It is a mystery to the Sheriff why this former Jail employee continues to obsess about Special Deputy Safi and the service he provides for the Sheriff’s Office.

 Finally, the Sheriff has the responsibility to ensure that all internal complaints are fully investigated and resolved satisfactorily. There would have been no reason not to investigate the Special Deputy if a complaint had been received by the Sheriff or his Command. The employees working at the Sheriff’s Office are accountable to the public and to the Oath of Office that they took when they were sworn in, which Oath requires being truthful at all times. Those employees who are unable to comply are disciplined up to and including termination.

 This lawsuit is nothing but an attempt to misrepresent the facts surrounding the Plaintiff’s termination," Sheriff Brian Begole said.
