Alameda County has finished an internal investigation into sexual assault allegations against Chief Probation Officer David Muhammad.
Supervisors are expected to announce a decision about whether to terminate or reinstate his contract Wednesday. But on Tuesday they were closed-mouthed publicly about the outcome.
"He remains on administrative leave," County Counsel Donna Ziegler wrote in an email Tuesday afternoon, refusing to elaborate on the future status of Muhammad's tenure with the county.
Muhammad has been on paid administrative leave since Feb. 14, shortly after a deputy probation officer filed sexual assault charges against him and Alameda County.
Muhammad said Tuesday afternoon he was unaware of any decision. "Not to my knowledge," he wrote in an email when asked if supervisors planned to terminate his contract.
A $1.5 million lawsuit filed by the woman against Muhammad will continue in court regardless of the county's decision.
Muhammad's private lawyer representing him in that action did not reply to a phone message or email. The woman returned to work in April.
The office of Attorney General Kamala Harris is still handling the criminal investigation.
In March, the county appointed LaDonna Harris, a retired Alameda County Sheriff commander, to head the probation department during Muhammad's absence.
Harris presented the agency's annual spending plan Tuesday during a Board of Supervisors
After the meeting, she said she had no knowledge of the status of Muhammad's contract, which could affect her future as the interim director.
Muhammad has been seen at the county building several times since he was put on leave, including during annual staff evaluations with supervisors.
