"If you take a wedding magazine, that becomes a personal attack at Pat Winn," Broadhurst said. "That has nothing to do with the supposed charges. That's just putting ointment in the eye."
Winn and his girlfriend plan to wed, Broadhurst said.
"Pat Winn is not a bookie and they'll find that out when they've done their investigation," Broadhurst said.
Winn remains on the job, said Superintendent Jeanne Whitten.
"We're still waiting for a disposition of the courts," she said.
Whitten could place Winn, a civil service employee, on paid administrative leave while his case is pending, but that "doesn't really make sense to me," she said.
