Investigation into county health director revived

SALINA, Kan. (AP) — The Saline County sheriff is reopening an investigation into a sexual harassment complaint against the county’s health director, who started work Monday.

Bronson Farmer said he is more concerned about his new job as director of the Saline County Health Department than he is about Sheriff Glen Kochanowski’s decision to reopen the investigation.

The Salina Journal reports (http://bit.ly/PYwgTh ) a woman alleged that Farmer sexually harassed her in 2006, when they both worked at the health department.

Farmer said Monday that the allegations were found to be false in 2007 and he is confident the new investigation will result in the same finding.

Kochanowski says he reopened the case because some people involved in the original investigation were not interviewed. He says the interviews could change the finding, or confirm it.
