Top Loudon Jailer Fired

Loudon, Loudon County (WVLT) - After being terminated two years ago for violating department policy only to return, Loudon County's jail administrator has been fired.

Captain Bill Shirk was fired Friday from his job as the county's chief jailer.

According to Sheriff's Department records, Shirk was placed on administrative leave July 18 for removing records from the jail.

Records say Shirk had removed records which would have verified supplies that were purchased for the jail.

Shirk's attorney, Herb Moncier, has declined comment.
