Frederick police officer resigns
Frederick police Capt. Kevin Grubb confirmed Friday night that Megan Mattingly, a Frederick police officer being investigated for perjury allegations, resigned at noon Friday, the Frederick News-Post reports.
Mattingly's resignation comes a little more than five months after Chief Kim Dine reassigned her to administrative tasks on May 25 after her testimony in a drug case was called into question.
Although no criminal charges had been filed against Mattingly as of Friday, according to court documents, a perjury investigation was being pursued by police and prosecutors in Montgomery County. At least 19 Frederick County drug and prostitution cases have been dropped in the wake of allegations that Mattingly perjured herself on the witness stand May 20 during a preliminary hearing in Frederick County District Court, according to court records.
