Ex-Columbus Cop Sentenced For Improperly Handling Cases

A former Columbus police detective has been fined and sentenced to 10 days house arrest for not properly investigating sexual assault and kidnapping cases. Amy Welsh pleaded no contest.  Two declaration of duty charges were dismissed. An investigation found Welsh mishandled evidence in a 2012 sexual assault case and a 2018 kidnapping case. Welsh retired in 2019.

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
