Police Complete Investigation Into Newly Hired City Attorney

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

The police investigation into inappropriate comments made by the new city attorney appears to be over, but no information will be released until next week.

The investigation was prompted by an anonymous email that claimed newly confirmed City Attorney Roxann Pais Cotroneo made the comments at an informal meeting with the City's legal and risk management staff, as well as a group of attorneys.

City Manager Ron Olson removed himself from the investigation and turned it over to the Corpus Christi Police Department. Police Chief Floyd Simpson said Thursday that he would deliver the report to the city on Friday. However, the city manager is out of town and said he won't be releasing any information until he has seen the report.

Cotroneo was hired by Olson and confirmed by City Council two weeks ago. She did not assume her duties Monday as planned because of the investigation.
