F’ville cop resigns after 2 women complain of groping

An investigation by the Fayetteville Police Dept. led to the mid-February resignation of Lt. Glen Askew based on the statements of two local women and Askew’s polygraph results that indicated deception.

The investigation concluded that the allegations made by two Fayetteville women had merit when they reported that Askew while at their homes showed explicit images of a nude woman and a video of a woman performing oral sex on a male on his phone, the report said. The investigation also noted that Askew failed a polygraph examination that questioned his conduct while at one of the women’s homes, according to reports.

Askew in late January had visited the homes of two women while on police business. It was during those visits that Askew showed the sexual images to the women, acted inappropriately, used poor judgment by instructing the women in self-defense moves in the privacy of their homes and had conversations of a personal nature involving moral turpitude, the report said.

A polygraph examination was conducted on Feb. 12. Askew after the examination said he did nothing wrong, though according to the polygraph examiner Askew’s responses to two questions pertaining to allegedly sexual contact with one of the women was deceptive, the report said.

Police Chief Steve Heaton on Monday said the matter was investigated once the allegations were revealed, adding that Askew subsequently resigned. Heaton said the resignation was accepted and that the department did review the statements and evidence for possible criminal infractions.

Heaton said the investigation revealed that Askew’s conduct at the residences was something that should not have occurred. He displayed conduct that is unbecoming an officer, Heaton said.

Former PTC Employee

Former PTC employee sentenced for illegal use of purchasing cards while employed by Fairburn. Wonder if he stole from the taxpayers in PTC before moving on to Fairburn? What is the statute of limitations? Check it out on ajc.com.

Actually for any issue

Actually for any issue involving "moral turpitude," a hearing is scheduled, which will essentially take away his police credentials. In this case, the military will likely be even stricter in its consequence.

He's in the military also.

He's in the military also.Apparently, their most severe
consequences are reserved for something like this
happening while on active duty. In this situation,
their consequence should be considerably milder than
that!

Crooked Government Employees - Fairburn

Fairburn's former IT guy gets a slap on the wrist: Five years probation and $17,500 restitution. This after robbing the taxpayers to the tune of $80,000 plus through illegal use of a city purchasing card. What about the rest of the money? Why no jail time? Too many crooks working in government. This story was on WSB tonight and in the AJC on-line. Didn't he live in Fayette County?
