Jonesboro Mayor Leslie Thompson issues statement regarding arrested Fire Chief

It is unfortunate that the Town’s Fire Chief has been accused of these allegations. In spite of the seriousness of the allegations, it is my position, as Mayor, to operate from the premise that all accused are innocent until proven guilty.

I would hope that people who are inclined to make premature judgement would give credence to our judicial system and recognize that every citizen is entitled to due process according to law. Neither Chief Brown nor the Town of Jonesboro received any monetary benefit from his actions and it does not appear that there was any intent to violate law which would constitute malfeasance.

For these reasons, the Town stands with and beside Fire Chief, Brandon Brown and prays that the scrutiny of all of the evidence will vindicate him.
