Scott County Judge Preserves Impeachment of Miner Police Chief

A Scott County Circuit Judge preserved the impeachment of the former elected police chief of Minor Missouri. The officer was identified as Christopher Griggs. He previously went to court to get his position back. This was after being impeached back in March by the city’s board alderman. He was impeached because he did not work a full time 40 hour week and be on call. He also fired a part-time dispatcher after she was hired again by board members. His attorney argued that that the impeachment proceedings were unlawful and illegal. He also argued that Griggs was denied his constitutional rights, including those of due process of the law. The judge wrote in response that the decision was supported by competent and substantial evidence.
