Sheriff charged with misdemeanor

Franklin County Sheriff Ewell Hunt has been arrested and charged with mishandling paperwork at his office.

The Roanoke Times reports the accusation comes out of a grand jury investigation of claims that Hunt directed his office to pay his teenage daughter for hours she did not work.

Hunt apparently is charged with a violation of section 15.2-1722 of the Virginia Code, which makes it a misdemeanor for a sheriff to fail to maintain adequate personnel records.

UPDATE: The grand jury report paints a dire picture of mismanagement at the sheriff’s office, reports The Roanoke Times.
