Former deputy indicted on misconduct, theft charges

Posted: Updated:

According to the Lebanon Democrat, former Wilson County sheriff's deputy and Board of Education member Greg Lasater turned himself in to police Friday night, after a grand jury indicted him for official misconduct and theft of property.

Sixteen counts of the 32 count indictment were for misdemeanor theft of property less than $500 in value and felony misconduct, according to Wilson County District Attorney Tommy Thompson.

Lasater, who is a 26 year veteran of the Wilson county sheriff's department, has been under investigation for allegations he was stealing gas from the sheriff's department revealed June 27 by Sheriff Robert Bryan.

The same day the allegations came forward, 45-year-old Lasater resigned both his seats on the school board, and from the sheriff's department, where served as a school resource officer.

Wilson County Jail records show Lasater was booked in Friday at 10:48 p.m., and released at 11 p.m.
