NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. -- Two Pasco County Sheriff's employees have been fired for having an affair on the clock and on sheriff's office property.
Sergeant Stephen Foshey was fired last week after an internal investigation showed in 2011 he had an affair with crime analyst, Amiee Heinemann, at their officers near Gower's corner.
"We believe that these two were allowing their affair to occur at other locations, but our biggest concern is when they're doing it on taxpayers' time in a sheriff's office location -- it's not going to be tolerated," said Sheriff Chris Nocco. "When you're here at the Pasco Sheriff's Office, on duty, you're here to protect our citizens."
Both individuals were married to other Pasco Sheriff's Office employees as well.
Back in February 2011, the Heinemann was awarded the Civilian Member of the Year Award at the Pasco Sheriff's Office annual Members of the Year award ceremony.
During her acceptance speech, she first thanked Foshey for nominating her for the award and then thanked her family for supporting her for during her many, many years of working with the sheriff's office. She then thanked her husband.
Foshey is charged with three counts of unbecoming of a sheriff's office member and one count of falsifying a time card.
Heinemann was charged with two counts of conduct unbecoming.
