Former Sheriff's Dept. employee admits guilt
A former Hamilton County Sheriff's employee, who moonlighted as a lounge singer, will plead guilty to five felonies and could get up to ten years in prison.
The Prosecutor's Office says Mickey Esposito, who used to supervise the Sheriff's Department property room, stole drugs and jewelry and gave them to his wife and step-son who sold them. Allison Esposito and Adam Fintak will also plead guilty and face ten years in prison.
The Sheriff’s Department says it now has new policies to make sure this does not happen again.
The Prosecutor's Office says the drugs and jewelry were from cases that had already been to court and were no longer needed as evidence. No cases, pending for trial, were impacted by this theft.
