Missouri’s Longest-Serving Sheriff Confessed to Stealing $79,000

Wallace Newman George Jr. was the Saline County sheriff for 36 years in Missouri until last Monday.

In a plea agreement, Wallace Newman George Jr. confessed to stealing $79,000 from the department between January 2010 and June 2015.





Wallace stole 36 checks issued by the state to his department as reimbursement for expenses incurred while transporting inmates, according to prosecutors.

Wallace was required to resign from his position on Monday, Feb. 8, 2016 as a part of the plea agreement.

For the good cops out there, who do their duty with honor and honesty:

The FBI has established a toll-free public corruption hotline, 1-855-KCPCTIP, and email KCPCTIP@ic.fbi.gov.

Filming Cops was started in 2010 as a conglomerative blogging service documenting police abuse. The aim isn’t to demonize the natural concept of security provision as such, but to highlight specific cases of State-monopolized police brutality that are otherwise ignored by traditional media outlets.
