The first story about McHenry County Sheriff’s Sergeant Greg Pyle’s arrest on ten counts of Predatory Criminal Sexual Assault ran in McHenry County Blog on January 8th. Links to various stories can be found here.
Since it’s been a couple of months, I decided to see what’s happening
February 23rd, McHenry County Blog reported that Pyle had been indicted by a Grand Jury.
With that having occurred, I wondered if he was still being paid.
The answer turns out to be “Yes.”
Here’s what I received in response to a Freedom of Information request:
“Sgt. Greg Pyle’s Gross Wages since inception of Administrative Leave until March 2nd was $11,550.”
Pyle went on administrative leave on January 9th.
I also requested “documents explaining why Pyle is still on the payroll.”
The FOI Office for the Sheriff’s Department replied,
“We do not have any document(s) that would supply an answer to your question in the second part of your request.”
