Florida Deputy Fired for Covering Up High Profile Sex Crimes against Children

McNeely, who moved out of the state from his Lehigh Acres home in June, said his dismissal was “extremely disheartening.” He said the Sheriff’s Office investigators “made me out to be a liar” when that wasn’t the case.

He said he disagreed with the investigator’s findings and pointed to his accomplishments over the course of his career.

“It’s a humiliation that I live with every day,” he said. “I lost a career that I loved.”

The Sheriff’s Office has so far declined to comment after McNeely’s termination on the cases which were mishandled by their department or what will now become of them, but once the allegations were first made they had said they would pursue them if they had the evidence.

Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Michelle Batten said that although some of those cases lack supplemental reports, none of them fall outside a statute of limitations.

“If evidence can be found proving the crime and who committed the crime, we can likely still prosecute the case,” she wrote in an email, adding that some of the cases were not criminal.
