County to probe Bryson surveillance

SHARE County to probe Bryson surveillance

(AP) Utah County commissioners may look into whether county policy was violated when County Attorney Kay Bryson got the sheriff's office to install county-owned surveillance equipment in a Salt Lake condominium owned by his estranged wife and occupied by his son.

The equipment caught the prosecutor's wife, state Rep. Katherine Bryson, R-Orem, with another man. "I can say the County Commission will probably be reviewing this in some context," County Commissioner Jerry Grover said.

Grover said he couldn't say who would investigate because it's a personnel issue.

In September, Kathy Bryson filed a complaint with the Salt Lake City Police Department against Utah County deputy sheriff Dennis Harris, who installed the video surveillance equipment in the condo at the request of Kay Bryson.

Kay Bryson said his son, Scott Bryson, thought someone may have broken into the condominium after he said he found some items that were "out of place."

The Brysons have been involved in a bitter divorce. On Wednesday, a judge granted a motion dissolving the marriage. The divorce will be final after the judge signs the order, but the couple still needs to work out property issues.
