Pollard May Not Be Able To Appeal Revoked Certification

A former Pitt County deputy sheriff, who was convicted in January for two counts of obstruction of justice and one count of not performing duties of her office, may not be able to appeal the revocation of her law enforcement certification.

Last year Michelle Pollard's certification was revoked on grounds that she lacked the good moral character required for justice officers. The Sheriff's Education & Training Standards Commission said the former lieutenant participated in a wet T-shirt contest and smoked marijuana.

In a summary judgment, signed last week, the Office of Administrative Hearings proposed to dismiss Pollard's certification appeal based on her felony conviction. That felony conviction permanently revokes her law enforcement certification.

Pollard is serving a six to eight month sentence at the State Women's Prison in Raleigh. She will have a chance to respond to the proposed order and the Sheriff's Commission will make a final decision in the case during its June meeting.
