Hudson Village Board turns case over to legal firm

The Village of Hudson is now moving to turn a job protections controversy over to a legal team, after community members voiced their support for a former police officer they say was fired because she became pregnant. 

The board was given a petition at last nights meeting with over 1,400 signatures, asking them to reinstate former officer Kayley Sprout.

Several people stood up and spoke in her favor, saying they're proud to have a female officer on the force and want to see Sprout continue to serve 

Cheryl Raidout says she thinks the situation will straighten itself out.

"I think it's wrong. There might be more to it. If it is, then we'll know about that too. But, one way or the other, the truth will set you free," she said.  "The right thing will be done. We are a country of laws and it's just that simple."

Board members declined to comment on the situation at the meeting. A previous statement did say that having an officer on the small force that couldn't perform their duties would put undue burden on the town.
