Moniteau County Sheriff’s Department Fires Two Employees Over Facebook Posts

Two employees fired from the Moniteau County Sheriff’s Office over the weekend after Facebook posts were deemed offensive and showed poor judgement.

Sheriff Tony Wheatley said jail employee Dillon Davenport and Lt. Kevin Morse were terminated after what he said Facebook posts by the 2 tarnished the reputation of the Moniteau County Sheriff’s Office and violated public trust.

Sheriff Wheatley in a press release apologized for the actions of the employees and to the families that it has affected.
