Morgan County Executive Don Edwards
Freytag vs. Edwards

It’s been more than two years since Morgan County Sheriff Glen Freytag filed a lawsuit seeking more than half a million dollars for additional deputies, vehicles, training and equipment, and pay increases for existing officers based on number of months in service.

The suit could come to an end next Wednesday, Feb. 28 as Circuit Court Judge Mike Pemberton has ordered a mediation session between Freytag, Morgan County Executive Don Edwards and attorneys for both sides.

Neither Edwards nor Freytag seemed surprised by Pemberton’s order.
