SPOKANE, Wash. -- Investigators with the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office recommended Friday that no charges be filed against a former police officer who was accused of stalking.
Officer Jeff Graves resigned in early June following the accusations.
The Spokane Police Department had launched an internal investigation regarding Graves.
The department placed Graves on leave May 9th when a woman complained that he was stalking and harassing her after they met on Facebook. SPD officials said a second internal affairs complaint was received subsequent to his placement on administrative leave.
SCSO detectives also investigated Graves.
Prosecutors said their investigation uncovered more than 4,000 texts exchanged between Graves and the woman accusing him of stalking. More than 3,000 of the text came from the woman according to prosecutors.
Spokane County Prosecutor Steve Tucker said he would make a final decision next week about whether to file charges against Graves.
