Lakeland, Florida -- A Lakeland Police Department sergeant named in the sex scandal is back on duty.
After reviewing the matter in great detail, the City of Lakeland reached an agreement with the Sgt. Bryan McNabb, the West Central Florida Police Benevolent Association (WCFPBA) and the Lakeland Police Department to reinstate him to regular duty with the police department.
McNabb was accused by Sue Eberle of making unwanted sexual advances. He was one of twenty officers she implicated.
Eberle's attorney David Linesch released the following statement Wednesday following the news of McNabb's reinstatement:
"Sue Eberle's forthright and clearly disturbing testimony to States Attorney, Jerry Hill regarding Sgt. McNabb speaks for itself. Accordingly, we find it incomprehensible and extremely reckless of Chief Womack and LPD to rehire Sgt. McNabb.
Furthermore, to put Sgt. McNabb into a role where he actually trains young cadets, not only potentially exposes the city of Lakeland to additional harm, but further taints the reputation of a once noble department and the city it serves."
