PHILADELPHIA — Gov. Tom Corbett's son-in-law's job as a Philadelphia police officer is in jeopardy over allegations of misconduct.
A police spokesman on Friday said that Gerold Gibson was suspended without pay and “with intent to dismiss” by Commissioner Charles Ramsey as the result of an internal investigation.
The spokesman, Lt. John Stanford, says the action is usually the first step when officers are fired.
Gibson, a narcotics officer who is married to Corbett's daughter, Kate, has not been charged with any crime, but the case has been referred to the Philadelphia district attorney's office.
Stanford confirmed that Ramsey has said the internal investigation was prompted by fellow officers' suspicion that Gibson was stealing items from crime scenes.
The governor's office declined to comment on the latest developments.There are currently no comments for this story.
