Probe finds no laws broken in document shredding

Posted: Updated:

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky State Police have finished an investigation of document shredding by former Legislative Research Commission Director Bobby Sherman and determined no laws were violated.

The documents were shredded last September two days after Sherman resigned. His departure came after his office investigated sexual harassment complaints against a former state lawmaker.

State police spokesman Paul Blanton told the Lexington Herald-Leader on Thursday that the shredded documents investigation was completed within the past week and no criminal act was found.

Sherman told The Courier-Journal last year that he went with other LRC staffers on a Sunday after he resigned to clean out his office and shredded documents, none of which involved sexual harassment allegations or any investigations involving the agency.

The Herald-Leader said Sherman was not immediately available for comment.
