Glasgow police Sgt. Jessie Barton to be reinstated



Sara Barton, who was not at the hearing but followed the commentary about it on Twitter, said in a phone conversation later that she was concerned some of the information about her might be misconstrued.

“I was getting text messages, phone calls [from Turcotte],” she said. “I was getting unannounced visits, and I did file a complaint with KSP, because I wanted him to leave me alone.”

Turcotte, who was sequestered in another room during the entire hearing as a potential witness but wasn't called, said he would review the recording of the proceedings and may have comments at that time.

While awaiting the council's “verdict,” the chief's wife, Trish Turcotte said she wished she could have testified, because every instance when the chief was said to have been spending time with Sara Barton, she was there as well, with the exception of the night Turcotte took her to the hospital.

“I know what happened and so does Jessie,” Trish Turcotte said. “It's a shame that after he tried to help them, this is what he gets in return. The issue is what (Barton) did in court; the rest of this is irrelevant.”
