Marion Co. deputies disciplined for involvement in sex scandal

By

The Marion County Sheriff’s Office reached a disciplinary decision on two deputies involved in a sex scandal last fall, according to a press release.

Maj. David Sperring and Capt. Chip Wildly will serve a 30-day unpaid suspension for their involvement in the scandal.

The two will be reinstated after that period but will be demoted in rank and salary. Sperring will take the position of captain, and Wildly will take the position of lieutenant.

Their respective work assignments will be determined after they complete their suspensions, according to the release. Both will be placed on a one-year probationary status.

“Their respective long and distinguished careers played a major role in these mitigating factors,” the release said.
