Latta police chief reinstated after firing

Posted: Updated:

LATTA, S.C. (AP) - The Latta City Council has voted to reinstate former police chief Crystal Moore, who had claimed she was fired because she is gay.

Friday night's vote came during a specially called meeting, and only hours after officials certified Tuesday's vote to change the town's form of government.

Mayor Earl Bullard, who was not present at the meeting, fired Moore in April after she refused to sign seven unexplained reprimands that Bullard presented to her on the same day.

Council members pleaded with Bullard to reinstate Moore, to no avail. The council then voted in May to let the town's citizens decide whether they wanted council or the mayor in charge of the town's business. The vote gave the power to the council instead of the mayor.
