Saline County Sheriff Bruce Pennington has changed his retirement date to Jan. 1, 2015.
Pennington delivered a letter to Jonathan Greer, Saline County civil attorney, at his home on Monday at around 2 p.m. which said, “This letter supersedes the letter given on August 30, 2013. I am amending my retirement date to January 1, 2015.” The letter was signed by the sheriff.
Pennington announced on Friday that he would be retiring Oct. 1 of this year, stating that he and his wife had been discussing the thought for a while and ultimately thought it was the best thing for him and his family.
This was all following a June 29 arrest for public intoxication and resisting arrest during an incident at Denton’s Trotline in Benton.
