LEBANON, OH (FOX19) - An independent attorney has been hired to investigate the alleged fraudulent records in the personnel file of the lead detective in the Ryan Widmer case.

Hamilton Township Lieutenant Jeff Braley is accused of lying about his job qualifications, work experience, and educational background.

Hamilton Township trustees have voted to hire attorney Doug Miller to determine whether there should be a pre-disciplinary hearing for Lieutenant Braley.

The allegations first came to light following Widmer's second trial, which ended with a hung jury.
