Jedidiah Hall the husband of a Tennessee police officer fired for having sex with six of her coworkers is standing by his wife, according to the Daily Mail on Friday.
“I don’t know how he’s doing it, he’s more of a man than I am, but he’s trying to salvage his marriage,” Jedidiah Hall’s boss, Coffee County Sheriff Chad Partin, told the outlet.
Officer Maegan Hall of the La Vergne, Tennessee, police department was fired after allegations surfaced that she engaged in sex with coworkers, sent them nude pictures, stripped naked at a “Girls Gone Wild”-themed hot tub party, and performed oral sex on two fellow officers while on duty.
According to an internal investigation last month, the hanky-panky also resulted in the firings of Sgt. Lewis Powell, Officer Juan Lugo, Sgt. Ty McGowan, and Detective Seneca Shields.
Officers Patrick Magliocco and Larry Holladay, who allegedly had romps with Maegan Hall, remained on the force but were suspended.
Investigators said Maegan Hall told her coworkers she was in an open marriage. One of her coworkers, however, stated that Jedidiah, the son of a pastor, was not on board.
Partin stated that the former park ranger had been training for a job with the Tennessee Highway Patrol but had withdrawn after the allegations against his wife became public. He’s now a deputy in Coffee County.
“I have offered and extended to him any resource that he needs. And all he says is, sheriff, I just want to work for the citizens of Coffee County and I love what I’m doing,’ Partin said.
“I don’t condone what went on at the La Vergne Police Department but he sure hasn’t broken any laws. He’s the victim here. There’s not a blemish on his record. He is doing a phenomenal, phenomenal job,” Partin added.
According to an internal investigation report by the La Vergne Police Department, Magliocco stated that Jedidiah Hall became upset at a party when Maegan began kissing his wife.
Jedidiah “really wasn’t on board” with his wife having a threesome, according to Magliocco.
Magliocco also expressed concern for Maegan Hall’s mental health, claiming she was prone to binge drinking. He claimed she once pointed an empty gun at her head and pulled the trigger “so she could hear what it sounded like.”
