  • Charges filed against Delaware Cty Sheriff

    This Sheriff has been under scrutiny for several years now. Including the most controversial one where he fired a pregnant deputy after refusing to give her light duty. Her husband, a Columbus police officer picked up the slack doing special duty assignments. He was killed working special duty at a bank during a botched bank robbery. The OCRC reinstated her job (after Bryan died) and she resigned immediately with a settlement and is now living with a toddler as a widow- no daddy.

    DELAWARE, Ohio -- Charges were filed on Monday against Delaware County Sheriff Al Myers, officials said.

    According to the Delaware County prosecutor, the charges include one count of conflict of interest and one count of receiving improper compensation, NBC 4 reported.

    Myers submitted his resignation on Friday, effective May 31.

    Chief Deputy Gil Borchers was selected by Myers to serve as acting Sheriff until a permanent replacement is appointed.

    The conflict of interest charge involved Myers allegedly using money seized from drug busts to purchase equipment and vehicles for the sheriff's office.

    The improper compensation charge allegedly involves money Myers was paid to work security at the Delaware County Fair.

    Time sheets obtained by NBC 4 show that Myers was paid $2,000 to $3,000 every year for his security consulting duties at the fair.

    The sheriff recently lost several civil suits filed by current and former employees.

    The Ohio Ethics Commission is also conducting an investigation into the sheriff's office.

    Myers' attorney has not returned NBC 4's calls.

    The possible penalty includes six months in jail and a $1,000 fine.

    Myers could be in court as early as Wednesday.

    What a jerk. Law enforcement will be better off without garbage like this in power.

    -I don't feel you honor someone by creating a physical gesture (the salute). You honor them by holding them in memory and, in law enforcement, proceeding in vigilant, ethical police work. You honor this country or deceased soldiers or whatever you're honoring when you salute a flag by thinking, feeling, and continuing a life of freedom.
