In this Aug. 3 2017 photo, Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts, left, and Chief Human Resources Officer Jason Jackson speak in Lincoln, Neb., during a news conference to release the findings of an internal investigation that led to the firing of Nebraska State Patrol superintendent Brad Rice in June. A review by Gov. Pete Ricketts' office faulted patrol leaders for failing to document Nebraska rooper Brienne Splittgerber's complaints that she was forced to undergo unnecessary, sexually invasive medical exams, and investigate the allegations. The review also faulted Rice, who was fired by Ricketts in July, for failing to correct the agency's inaction after he learned about it in February. (AP Photo/Nati Harnik)
