PARIS, IL. (ECWd) -
After receiving numerous reports on this, we have confirmed through the Edgar County Sheriff's Department that Roger Hopper was sworn in as an Edgar County Deputy on Friday, May 23, 2014, and returned on Sunday, May 25, 2014, to turn in all of his equipment and resign his position with the Sheriff's Department.
This comes on the heels of an arbitrator victory and subsequent Circuit Court ruling to not overturn the arbitrator's ruling on his original termination.
More information will be posted as it becomes available.
