Beloved Luther police officer fights for his job

LUTHER, Okla. -  A Luther police officer is saying the allegations against him are "lies" and he will fight to save his job.

Sgt. Michael Oliver has been on the Luther police force for over a decade.

On November 15, he was put on administrative leave for 14 days, then his job is to be terminated.

Why he was placed on leave has never been made public by the Luther Police Department or by Officer Oliver.

A meeting was held at Luther Town Hall Tuesday night to select a panel that will hear Officer Oliver's case on Wednesday.

"When he was put on administrative leave, he was given 14 days for the appeals board. Tonight, they are going to pick the appeals board. Tomorrow, they will get together for the actual appeal," said Luther Police Chief David Randall.

News 4 reached out to Sgt. Oliver who said through a Facebook message, "I can say this, that what they are saying about me are lies and false information."
