Boyle County Deputy Al Isaacs will be suspended three days without pay for his role in the unauthorized disposal of evidence from the sheriff's department's evidence room.
Sheriff LeeRoy Hardin said today that Isaacs will probably serve his suspension in July, after a new schedule for deputies is configured on June 29 and the possible hire of a new deputy.
"I'd like to do it right now and get it over with, but I can't because I've got to have coverage," Hardin said. "That would put me without two deputies, and I can't have that."
Former deputy Merl Baldwin resigned last month after an investigation revealed he put evidence, including pills, marijuana and documents, in a Dumpster behind Dawahare's at Danville Manor shopping center.
