Sheriff says Mensah will remain Waukesha County deputy following judge's probable cause ruling

WAUKESHA COUNTY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Former Wauwatosa police officer Joseph Mensah, who resigned after shooting and killing three people on duty in a five-year period, will remain a deputy with Waukesha County Sheriff's Office for now.

That's the word Thursday, from the Waukesha County sheriff.

On Wednesday, a judge ruled that a special prosecutor must review the 2016 death of Jay Anderson, Jr., saying it was likely that Mensah was criminally negligent in Anderson's death.

The sheriff says he will continue to assess and review the need for possible action against Mensah.
