LEE COUNTY, Fla. — A former Major with the Lee County Sheriff's Office is calling for Sheriff Carmine Marceno to step down.
Carmen McKinney wrote a letter to the Sheriff, dated October 1st asking Marceno to step down.
McKinney says Marceno's actions involving a female victim who claimed he abused his power and falsified applications about his work history are violations of the standards of conduct.
McKinney says if Marceno fails to honor the request, the request will be made public.
McKinney also stated his intent is not to destroy Marceno's reputation, but to protect the integrity of the Lee County Sheriff's Office.
In a letter to media, McKinney states those in public offices have accountability to the cities they serve, and those in leadership positions have even higher accountability.
Fox 4 has spent months investigating Sheriff Carmine Marceno, pointing out discrepancies in his background.
