No Criminal Charges In Deputy Adam Hallett Case


The special prosecutor appointed to investigate the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department's handling of the Adam Hallett case says he is not contemplating the filing of any criminal charges

Oneida County 1st Assistant District Attorney Mike Coluzza tells 7 News that the decision was made based on a review of all evidence in the case. 

In December 2012, Deputy Hallett was found slumped over the wheel of his patrol vehicle in the town of Henderson. 

Deputy Matthew Vaughn, who responded to the scene, allegedly threw a bottle of whiskey found in Hallett's car into a field.  

Deputy Hallett was charged with having an open container and both he and Deputy Vaughn were disciplined internally.
