DOJ drops investigation of sheriff candidate Sergi

 Posted: 2:30 PM May 08, 2014

A criminal investigation of Jackson County sheriff candidate Bob Sergi for supposed illegal campaign activity has been dropped due to insufficient evidence, a Department of Justice spokeswoman said today.

The DOJ notified the Jackson County Sheriff's Office on Wednesday that it was dropping the investigation, said Kristina Edmunson, a DOJ spokeswoman.

According to a letter addressed to sheriff's Capt. Monty Holloway from a DOJ attorney, Sergi was under investigation for first- and second-degree official misconduct, computer crime and third-degree theft.

Following a thorough investigation, DOJ investigators "concluded there is insufficient evidence to support a criminal prosecution," the letter stated.

Calls to Sergi and the sheriff's office were not immediately returned.
