Pot County Confidential UPDATE

The Omaha World Herald reports this day that the trouble Jeff TeKippe, former assistant county attorney in Pottawattamie County, was in has increased by several orders of magnitude.

It is alleged that he was using the Pot County evidence crib as his personal drugstore. It was reported that the AG's office has added six more counts of theft and another felonious misconduct count for falsifying evidence. There is a first degree theft charge in there, and the total is 297 gm of cocaine and 37 gm of marijuana went missing on his watch. According to the story Jeff checked out the evidence in a drug case and returned it, and it was found that flour had been substituted for the nose candy.

Although my time in prosecution was short, and I didn't know Jeff, all I've got to say about the subject is words that a very wise man once told me: "This is going to get worse before it gets better."

Vaya con Dios, Jeff. You're going to need all the help you can get.
