David Woolverton will be reinstated to Lakeland Police force but demoted for role in sex scandal

An arbitrator has ruled that former Lakeland Sgt. David Woolverton should be reinstated to duty but demoted to the rank of officer for his role in the Lakeland Police sex scandal. He'll also get back pay dating back to his firing date from last July. 
Woolverton and another sergeant admitted to having sex with a former Lakeland crime analyst, Sue Eberle, and then refusing to take a polygraph test to answer questions around the investigation.
