Reardon Investigation Forwarded to Prosecutor
- WSP to Make No Recommendation on Charging -
Olympia -- The Washington State Patrol’s Criminal Investigation Division has forwarded its investigation of allegations made against Snohomish County Executive Aaron Reardon to the office of Island County Prosecutor Greg Banks for review.
This investigation began on October 28, 2011, at the request of the Snohomish County Prosecutor. The complaint alleged misuse or misappropriation of public funds.
The State Patrol’s role in this case was that of fact-finder. The agency will make no recommendation, either for or against, any specific criminal charge.
Although the case file has been forwarded to his office, the file will not be available for public disclosure until Mr. Banks indicates that no further investigation is necessary. Because Mr. Banks might have questions or additional investigative direction, the case remains officially under investigation until he is satisfied that it is complete.
