Newport detective put on probation after internal investigation

NEWPORT (WATE) – A Newport police detective was placed on departmental probation after an internal investigation found she had befriended a felon.

Detective Donna Harrison, 36, was reprimanded Monday after authorities learned she was friends with Christopher Luke Gorrell, 28.

Gorrell has a rap sheet of more than 10 years, including a 2010 conviction for voluntary manslaughter.

Newport Police Chief Maurice Shults said the department did an internal investigation that found Harrison and Gorrell met when she did an undercover investigation earlier this year.
