Andrea Cecere letter of intent to discipline
The Sheriff’s Department found that Andrea Cecere made false statements and wrote a false report about a violent encounter with an inmate. Cecere reported that she was trying to handcuff an inmate when he threatened her and swung an arm at her. The actions, she said, led a male deputy to come to her aid and use force against the inmate. But three other deputies said the inmate was already handcuffed when the male deputy began hitting him. Cecere was told she would be suspended for 20 days. A judge rescinded the suspension because the department missed the legal deadline to discipline her.
