The investigation continues into allegations of misconduct made against several authority figures in Marietta and Washington County.

At this point, Sergeant Robert Eddy with the Washington County Sheriff's Department has resigned, and Firefighter John Brooks has been terminated from his firefighter position in connection with allegations made by 27-year-old Crystle Phillips.

City officials say Brooks was terminated for, among other things, having sex with Phillips while on duty inside Fire Station #1.

According to personell records, Phillips' juvenile son was taking a tour of the fire station while Brooks took nude photos of her inside the facility.

Two Marietta Police Officers remain on administrative leave while decisions are being made about the allegations.

Officials say Phillips was arrested on drug trafficking charges, and her preliminary hearing is set for Wednesday.
