Lead detective in Ryan Widmer case resigns

LEBANON, OH (FOX19) -

Lt. Jeff Braley, the lead detective in the Ryan Widmer murder case, has resigned from his position with the Hamilton Township police department.

Lt. Braley came under scrutiny because of alleged resume fraud during the trial.

Braley's resignation, submitted Friday, takes effect Sept. 1. He cited personal reasons for his resignation. The Township has accepted his resignation and has placed Lt. Braley on an unpaid leave of absence until September 1.

Although technically a member of the Township's Police Department until the effective date, Lt. Braley surrendered his badge and no longer has police authority with the Township's Police Department.

According to Hamilton Township, Lt. Braley is entitled to the bi-weekly payment of his accumulated vacation, compensatory and accrued sick time.

Ryan Widmer is serving a 15 years to life sentence after being convicted of murder in his third trial. He has appealed the conviction.

FOX19 will continue to gather information and will bring you the latest here and on FOX19 Evening News at 6.
