Charles Hurley keeps dropping. The former chief of the Miami-Dade Schools Police was suspended from the position back in May after reports he had sexually harassed female officers. He was officially demoted in January, and now its come to light that a few days later, he turned in his resignation letter.
NBC Miami reports he put in his resignation on February 8th, just a little over a week after his demotion.
"I have a lot to say about it, but I'm not making any comment," Hurley told the station. "I won't be making any comments."
Hurley is currently facing a lawsuit brought on by two former female officers. Among other things, Hurley is alleged to have whipped out his penis and forcibly kissed one of the women. The women said they were victims of retaliation when they tried to speak up.
The school board has since begun its search for a new chief.
