Nick Bertram reinstated as Deputy Sheriff in Russell County

Larry Smith, 92.7 The Wave news, called in a report that, according to Russell County Sheriff Lee Smith, Nick Bertram has just been reinstated as Deputy Sheriff of the Russell County Sheriff's Department.

The reinstatement came after the Russell County Grand Jury, meeting in Jamestown today, refused to return an indictment against Nick Bertram.

Last week a judge dismissed all charges of wrongdoing and official misconduct against Bertram. Kentucky State Police took the case to the Grand Jury today, Tuesday, February 26, 2013, but it refused to return an indictment against Bertram. According to Sheriff Smith, Bertram was reinstated tonight at the conclusion of the Grand Jury hearing in Jamestown.

Bertram had originally been charged with burglary, possession of drug paraphernalia, etc., but former Sheriff Larry Bennett testified on behalf of Bertram at which time the Grand Jury refused to indict Bertram.

Bertram was cleared of all charges last week and has now been reinstated as Deputy Sheriff following refusal to indict this week by the Grand Jury this evening. -- 92.7 The Wave news.
