AUBURN, Calif. (KTXL) — Following a closed session disciplinary meeting on Friday, Placer County CEO Todd Leopold was given a 30-day termination notice for a discrimination and harassment complaint filed by an employee on May 25, 2022, according to the Placer County Board of Supervisors
The board said that the termination was not done in connection with Leopold’s involvement in the death of Inderkum High School student Anthony Williams on March 19 in Rocklin.
On May 13, Leopold came forward as the driver in a crash that killed Williams. In a statement issued on May 13, he said he could “now publicly acknowledge” he was the driver.
“Many individuals have questioned why I didn’t provide an official response to media requests for identification of the driver. Unfortunately, I could not comment on the pending investigation and certainly did not want to be perceived, in any way, as attempting to influence the outcome of the Rocklin Police Department’s investigation,” Leopold said in the statement.
The Rocklin Police Department announced that they would not be pursuing charges against the driver following their investigation.
