GREENE COUNTY, Va. (WHSV) -- The Greene County Sheriff’s Office fired one of its deputy sheriffs after a Virginia State Police investigation Wednesday.
Sgt. Robert L. Beverage, a 24-year veteran of the sheriff’s office, has been terminated and charged with two counts of using the Internet to solicit sex from a minor.
As the investigation continues, the Greene County Sheriff’s Office is cooperating with the Virginia State Police.
The sheriff's office wants to make it clear to residents of Greene County that their sheriff’s office employees are expected to adhere to the laws that we are entrusted to uphold.
Conduct that undermines that trust will not be tolerated under any circumstances by this administration.
Anyone with questions or further information is requested to contact Corinne Geller, Public Relations Director, for the Virginia State Police at 804-674-2789 or 804-263-5547.
