Lt. Donna Tompkins promoted to captain

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

Lieutenant Donna Tompkins with the Muscogee County Sheriff's Office has officially been promoted to Captain.

She is taking the place of Captain Larry Tew, who died on Sunday Feb. 2.

Additional promotions include Sergeant Chuck Pickett to Lieutenant and Corporal David Rice to Sergeant.

Lieutenant Tompkins has been in the news before – the one half of a discrimination case against Muscogee County Sheriff John Darr, who was accused of not giving promotions because of gender.

In a November ruling of that suit Judge Clay Lands gave this decision, saying "Lieutenant Tompkins shall be promoted to the rank of captain in the Muscogee County Sheriff's Office by July 1, 2016 or within 30 days of the next captain vacancy, whichever occurs first."
