No Charges for Former Wapato Officers
Two former Wapato corrections officers accused of an alleged sec scandal at the city jail will no longer be facing charges.
Yakima County Prosecuting Attorney Jim Hagarty says a lack of evidence and unreliable witnesses resulted in the dropped charges against officers David Madril and Bruce Benscoter.
The two were investigated earlier this year for the claims -- both have resigned from their positions.
Benscoter is accused of embezzling money from the local youth athletic league while serving as it's director.
That case is still underway.
