Sheriff seeks probe, citing Scannell sex prosecutions

Email

Because Cook County Attorney Tim Scannell prosecutes people who commit sex crimes with minors, and because he is accused of having an inappropriate romantic relationship with a 17-year-old girl, Cook County Sheriff Mark Falk has asked the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension to investigate Scannell.

Jill Oliveira, public information officer for the BCA, said Tuesday that the agency wouldn't comment on the nature or subject of the investigation.
