Palm Beach County sheriff's officials placed seven corrections deputies on leave in the past few days and are working with prosecutors to determine if criminal charges apply.

Officials from the sheriff's office and the State Attorney's Office would not disclose the nature of the investigation.

"By law, we're not allowed to talk about the investigation until it's complete," said sheriff's spokeswoman Teri Barbera.

Barbera said the seven deputies, under investigation for alleged misconduct, were placed on administrative leave with pay last week. Mike Edmondson, State Attorney's Office spokesman, said investigators expect to finish their investigation within the next few weeks.
