Investigation Shows Discrimination In Missoula Det. Reassignment

Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA -

An investigation by the Montana Human Rights Bureau showed the Missoula County Sheriff's office may have discriminated against a detective when they allegedly demoted him for his political beliefs.

Detective Jason Johnson filed a complaint against the sheriff's office in May. Johnson accuses Sheriff Carl Ibsen of demoting him from his job as public information officer after he told the sheriff he planned to support another detective running for the sheriff's position. Sheriff Ibsen had told him he was removing him from the position because he didn't want to "sideline him from his career."

We will have more information on the investigation, and comments from both sides, tonight on the Fox Montana News at Nine.
