BOONE COUNTY, Ind. - The interim Boone County Sheriff requested a full audit of the books during the former sheriff’s time in office.
In June, Ken Campbell resigned after he was accused of having a relationship with an alleged prostitute for more than four years, but he said he did nothing illegal.
Officials said Monday that so far there was no evidence of financial wrongdoing, but an internal investigation was still ongoing.
"If anything criminal is found through this investigation, a 3rd party Law Enforcement Agency will investigate further. If a violation of Standard Operating Guidelines is found, we will take immediate, internal, disciplinary action," acting Sheriff Mike Nielsen said.
Nielsen took over immediately after Campbell's resignation and said his office was working to regain the trust of the public. He said the audit and investigation was his way of moving forward.
"It’s time to move forward, but before we can do that, we must make sure there are no residual effects. We need to focus on the future, and not the past," Nielsen said.
