Former Kansas Police Chief Won't Be Charged

By  | 

KINGMAN, Kan. (KAKE)-- No charges will be filed against a former Kansas police chief.

Former Kingman Police Chief Marc Holloway resigned on January 3 after the KBI completed an investigation that was prompted by the city. The exact details of that investigation were never released.

Holloway had been on paid administrative leave since November prior to his resignation. The KBI report was submitted to the city in late December with no recommendations for charges.

In an email to KAKE News Tuesday night, Holloway said:

"This morning it was brought to my attention that this investigation has been concluded. After being judged publicly, with no way of defending myself, I am glad that the citizens finally have access to the truth. I would like to thank all of those in the community who have supported me. "

Today, City of Kingman Attorney Gregory Graffman also released a statement:

"The Kingman City Atttorney's office received several investigative reports from the Kansas Bureau of Investigation in late December 2013. The KBI reports pertained to investigations of former Kingman Chief of Police, Marc Holloway. Since the City Attorney's office would have a conflict of interest in reviewing these reports for possible criminal charges, a special prosecutor was asked to review all of the KBI reports. Attorney Michael Johnston of Johnston, Eisenhauer & Eisenhauer in Pratt, Kansas was asked to serve as special prosecutor for these matters. After reviewing all of the KBI materials submitted, Mr. Johnston has declined to file any charges against Mr. Hollowy. The matters involved the KBI investigation and issues related to Mr. Holloway are concluded in this office. The Kingman City Attorney's office has now closed this case. No further statements will be made concerning this matter."
