Nunn was terminated from his position that he held for less than a year on Jan. 26. District Attorney Andy Hamlin said currently, he believes Nunn's crimes had no influence on his duties as an officer.

"At this time, there is no evidence to suggest Dunn's alleged conduct is related to his employment with the Pickens County Sheriff's Department," Hamlin said. "We are continuing to conduct a fair and impartial investigation into the matter.
