Could a county coroner soon arrest scandal-ridden Sheriff Maketa and his accused subordinates for whoring?
The Colorado Springs Gazette reports on the growing investigation:
El Paso County Sheriff Terry Maketa is embroiled in accusations of sex with subordinates, abusive treatment of employees and dismantling oversight of the office budget that could stain his 12-year career and sink future prospects for one of the most powerful local Republicans.
Maketa allegedly has had sexual relationships with three female subordinates for years, traveling with them using public funds, promoting them to top jobs despite objections from commanders and threatening anyone he suspected of mentioning the relationships, according to interviews and documents obtained by The Gazette.
The coroner — Dr. Robert C. Bux — is the only official with the authority to arrest the county sheriff. In every county, the coroner is a separate office authorized by the Colorado Constitution to be in every way legally equal to the Sheriff.
