Former county corrections officer drops appeal of his firing
A public hearing was scheduled for last Friday on Keith Nelson's appeal, but it was called off when he decided not to fight the dismissal.
At the time of the thefts, Nelson's wife was the jail's office administrator and oversaw payroll records submitted to the county's finance department.
"Cpl. Nelson still insists that he did not deserve to be terminated, but at this point the well has been poisoned and he has moved on with his life and has other employment," said attorney William Cahill, who represents Nelson on behalf of Teamsters Local 633.
County officials have said little about Nelson's firing. Prosecutors have said Nelson was fired following an internal investigation by the Rockingham County Department of Corrections that was independent of the sheriff's department probe into the criminal case against his wife.
County Commissioner Kate Pratt, board chairman, said she also wasn't sure of the reasons.
"I honestly don't know what his thinking was or what he was advised to do," she said. "All I know is he wanted (the appeal hearing), which is fine. It was his right to do it."
