Milwaukee Sheriff Clarke promotes captain despite misconduct case

Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. recently promoted Nancy Evans to the captain overseeing airport security, even though Clarke’s own internal investigation found she had committed a “clear act” of misconduct in office just 18 months ago.

Prosecutors decided last year not to press charges against Evans because they couldn’t prove she personally benefited when awarding thousands of taxpayer dollars to an account she created for her longtime boyfriend via no-bid contracts.

But a fellow captain who investigated Evans for the agency concluded that she broke county rules in providing contracts to Jevon Terry, a former corrections officer with whom she had an extramarital affair, according to an internal report obtained by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
