GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. - A grand jury indicted a former major in the Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Department on Wednesday.
Based on a state investigation, District Attorney Danny Porter sought an indictment against him in 2012.
At the time, Porter said former county commissioner Shirley Lasseter provided a statement about Neal's relationship with a Sugar Hill towing company and his efforts to get the county contract with it, though that never panned out.
Porter said Lasseter also talked about Neal's involvement with a local auto parts distributor that sold the county less than $20,000 worth of brake parts.
"We believe we can show that he had an ownership in the distributorship, sold the parts, and he derived a profit from that,” Porter said.
Porter said he expects Neal to turn himself in Monday morning.
