The rise and decline of a sheriff

Jenne From Crime Scene's own Wanda J. DeMarzo:

It's been two years since federal authorities began investigating Broward's top cop, Sheriff Ken Jenne, about his outside businesses. A grand jury has been trying to determine whether Jenne used his public office for personal financial gain with those business ventures.

The sheriff, who makes about $170,000 a year in his elected position, has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing. He did so again Thursday when Joan Murray, a reporter with Miami Herald news partner WFOR-CBS 4, caught him on his way to a waiting car.

"I believe my record speaks for itself," Jenne said, adding that he plans to finish out his term, which ends next year.

"I have been answering these questions and I believe I've answered everything," Jenne said about the grand jury proceedings. Murray's full report will be posted on the WFOR website later Thursday.
