BOULDER CITY -- The Clark County District Attorney’s Office has determined that Boulder City’s former Police Chief Thomas Finn did not commit a crime in the case involving a request for emails about a motorcycle gang.

The Attorney General’s Office investigated the case, and asked the DA’s Office to review their findings, primarily because of an email from Finn that directed staff to delete emails related to preparations for an event the motorcycle club was holding in Boulder City.

“At first, the email seemed unusual,” District Attorney Steve Wolfson said. “However, when the city actually received a public records request, Finn and the city provided the documents requested. In fact, Finn contacted the city’s IT manager to make sure that backup computer files were searched for emails that may have been deleted from his individual inbox.”

This action showed that Finn realized that while emails and records can be deleted from one file, they are not permanently deleted from the city’s computer system. This supports Finn’s contention that he was trying to prevent the accidental dissemination of sensitive information contained in various emails, instead of the permanent destruction of any public records.
