Ethics panel dismisses complaint against Jacques

The State Ethics Commission has dismissed allegations that Cheryl Jacques, a former state senator who is now an administrative law judge, used her official position to try to gain an advantage in assisting her brother-in-law’s dental office. The commission said in a decision issued Tuesday that it was “confronted with two competing versions of what occurred” and that it had “no basis for determining” which was more credible. Because of that, the commission said, there was no “preponderance of evidence” proving that Jacques had “knowingly, or with reason to know, attempted to use her position to gain an unwarranted privilege” for her brother-in-law.
