Husband Of Police Officer Who Slept With 6 Of Her Fellow Cops Will Stay By Her Side

The husband of a Tennessee cop who slept with six of her fellow officers is standing by her side. Maegan Hall of the La Vergne Police Department was fired from her job after it was revealed she’d been getting on with six male colleagues, often while “on duty and inside city-owned property.” That’s still not enough to make her husband walk away.

Reports say Maegan Hall had “engaged in sexual relationships” and “exchanged explicit photos” with more than one of her fellow officers. She told the men, who were also either dismissed or suspended, that she’s in an “open marriage” with her husband, Jedidiah Hall.

An investigation that began in December discovered Maegan Hall’s relationship with fellow La Verge officers including Patrol Officer Juan Lugo-Perez, Sgt. Lewis Powell, Detective Seneca Shields, and Sgt. Henry Ty McGowan, all of whom have been fired. She also slept with Patrol and K-9 Officer Larry Holladay, Patrol Officer Patrick Magliocco, and Patrol Officer Gavin Schoeberl, all of whom have been suspended.

The fact that Jedidiah wants to stand by Maegan’s side has baffled many, including Coffee County Sheriff Chad Partin, Jedidiah’s boss.

As he told The Daily Mail: “I don’t know how he’s doing it, he’s more of a man than I am, but he’s trying to salvage his marriage. I don’t condone what went on at the La Vergne Police Department but he sure hasn’t broken any laws. He’s the victim here. There’s not a blemish on his record. He is doing a phenomenal, phenomenal job.”

It’s unclear how Maegan’s activities came to light, but Sgt. Powell stopped seeing Maegan as he became worried about losing his job and his own marriage.

Police Chief Burrell Davis issued a statement on the situation on Monday, January 16, saying: “This is a difficult situation for our department and for the city, but I want to be clear that the actions of a few do not represent this department as a whole.

“This situation is being addressed internally with our staff, we are bringing in counselors to help our officers work through these circumstances, and we will continue to provide the most professional protection as possible for this community.”

“We have sufficient staff to cover all of our patrol shifts and I have full confidence in our officer’s ability to protect and serve. We are working diligently to rebuild the trust of our citizens and our community.”

“We understand this will take time and diligence from our command staff and officers to repair the honor and integrity of our department.”

As for what Maegan Hall herself thinks, she told the Daily Mail, “I don’t want to discuss it, I’m just going to move on and live my life.”
