No charges against the Lansing Police Detective at the center of a state police investigation.

The Livingston County Prosecutor reviewed the case against Detective Catherine Farrell and found no reason to press charges.

She was placed on paid administrative leave in October after investigators learned cell phone records in a criminal sexual conduct case weren't given to the prosecutor in time for trial.

Police Chief Mike Yankowski tells us Farrell is still being investigated by Internal Affairs, to see if she violated any of the department's policies or procedures.

"If it's found she violated any policies or procedures, she will be held accountable. I want to point out we take all allegations very seriously," says Chief Yankowski. "We investigate them thoroughly and we do hold our officers accountable if they are found to do any wrongdoing."

Chief Yankowski tells us if she's found in violation, punishment could range from counseling to termination. We'll be sure to keep you updated when the department's investigation is complete.
