During the course of the investigation, Officer Aders tendered his resignation, which has been accepted. The investigation has concluded resulting in charges being filed against Mr. Aders. The matter is now in the hands of the prosecuting attorney. Any questions regarding the criminal allegations against Mr. Aders will need to be forwarded to the Muhlenberg County Sheriff's Department."
