I got a copy of this sent to me and I know little about this. I’m posting this for someone to contact me with info.
While I know that Jeremy Smalls was disciplined for a similar action after a tirade by Chief Deputy Nonsense and legal counsel Gerry Champagne. While I do not know who “Jessica” is, I know that it was her who clarified the familial condition to the administration causing the disciplinary actions Smalls faced, including suspension for this same act (sans the fraud to cover it up).
So while I am not surprised, I am publishing this for clarity by those involved. Y’all know how to reach me.
Gerald Champagne, Attorney for Escambia County Sheriff’s Office
Hired in 2010 at a rate of $35 per hour.
Then in 2012, Mr. Champagne’s Salary jumped more than the 3% merit raise he received every year.
His prior employment contract was replaced by this.
Since then he’s jumped even more to this.
As of last year, his pay is now: $170,498 per year which based on his contract is roughly $80 per hours at 40 hours a week for 52 weeks. What was even more telling was the number of people who make over $100K a year at the Sheriff’s office.
