El Dorado County Chief Probation Officer Greg Sly Placed on Indefinite Leave
Superior Court Judge Suzanne Kingsbury, who has oversight of the Probation Department, made the decision effective Sept. 28. She deferred comment to County Administrative Officer Terri Daly.
Daly was not available for comment.
County officials speaking off the record told Lake Tahoe News the CAO has been having issues with Sly for some time. What those issues are remain unknown.
Mike Applegarth, who works in the CAO office, said because it’s a personnel matter, he is not at liberty to provide any details. He did not know if Sly is on paid or unpaid leave.
Gary Hudgeons, assistant chief probation officer, has been named acting chief by Kingsbury. He did not return phone calls.
In an email that LTN obtained Hudgeons says, “I have spent the weekend mostly in shock of this news and I suspect many of you will be as well. There is a very difficult road ahead of us over the next days and weeks.”
