DAKOTA CITY, Neb. (AP) - A northeast Nebraska jail administrator who faced possible discipline over a harassment complaint has quit his post.

Board member Rick Bousquet told the Dakota County Board of Corrections on Monday that Terry Kern had resigned for personal reasons. Bousquet says Kern mentioned he’d planned to retire in January when he turned 65 and that a family member had health problems.

The board had scheduled closed-session discussions about the complaint against Kern and a possible vote on whether to the longtime administrator. But the board took no further action Monday because Kern resigned.

Kern has said the complaint stemmed from a comment he’d made and that he should probably watch what he says.
