Press Release – As previously reported through some media outlets, on September 22, 2017, the Office of the Campbell County Attorney and other county officials and departments received emails from Laura Spooner inquiring where she should direct complaints involving members of the Board of Campbell County Commissioners requesting an investigation. This office forwarded the emails received to the Gillette Police Department on that same date. Because the complaints grew to include complaints involving the Gillette City Council, on September 27, 2017, Chief Hloucal advised that he believed a potential conflict exists with his department impeding its ability to conduct an investigation.
Following receipt of this information, Ron Wirthwein, the Campbell County Attorney, contacted the Division of Criminal Investigation and forwarded the emails received to DCI. After reviewing the email and internally considering the matter, DCI declined to investigate further or otherwise take any action with regard to this matter.
At this time, nothing further is pending and no further action will be taken.
