A year after getting case, DA hasn't decided whether to charge former KCKPD chief

KANSAS CITY, Kan. - Over a year has passed since a criminal investigation was launched against former Kansas City, Kansas, Police Chief Terry Zeigler. Wyandotte County District Attorney Mark Dupree still hasn't announced a decision on charges. At issue is the KCK lake house that Zeigler rented from the city in 2016 for $19,000.

Let's see his list of expenses and let the public see what's written. I do know cleaning, painting and getting windows to work properly can be a pia.

My first thought of when Ms. Grant complained about the house usage was just jealousy. Why Zeigler? That particular home sets on a private drive so that is one I have never personally seen - is it a piece of junk house or livable as is? I can't tell you.

I've always thought the state should claim eminent domain on that particular lake mostly because of fisheries mismanagement. UG doesn't know what's in there swimming. Last I heard was the lake hasn't been managed by KS game wardens since 2004. Hope I'm wrong about that.

I have an idea.. You can be a mayor, a police chief, a fire chief, a dog catcher etc... You get a salary and then you go pay to live somewhere. The deal was a sweetheart deal.

The deal was part of his compensation. There is much more to job compensation than just a salary. It can take any form besides monetary, including in this case trading free leasehold in exchange for sweat equity.

So what would or could he be tried for charge wise?
