DECATUR CO., GA (WALB) - Decatur County authorities said their investigation into the county prison uncovered problems with the former warden's management.
The investigation began in July after former and current employees made allegations against then-warden Elijah McCoy.
The county administrator said during interviews, which were not under oath, employees claimed McCoy used county-owned vehicles for personal use and had an affair with an officer at the prison.
McCoy resigned before the investigation was completed.
Decatur County Administrator Alan Thomas said, "Had Mr. McCoy not resigned, there would have been some disciplinary action taken on an administrative level. As a result of his resignation, there is no need to pursue that course of action."
Thomas said the county has no plans to ask the district attorney to review their investigation or start one of his own.
Two deputy wardens will continue to run the correctional institute.
