A Christian County Sheriff’s deputy under criminal investigation by Kentucky State Police has submitted his resignation.

Sheriff Livy Leavell announced in a news release Thursday that Deputy Steve Tucker, who was a detective and the school resource officer at Christian County High School, submitted his resignation after previously being placed on administrative leave without pay.

Leavell says, “Given the preliminary findings of our own internal investigation and the ongoing criminal Kentucky State Police investigation, I have accepted Mr. Tucker’s resignation.”

Few details have been released about the nature of the investigation, with Sheriff Leavell describing the allegations as “very serious in nature if found true” at the time of his suspension.
