Do your job reporters. They have already released the charging affidavit and other media outlets have told what he did. It wasn't all that scandelous. He should quit but not that big a deal.
Actually, Franklin County Court has sealed pretty much all details regarding the charges, and two newspapers are now seeking to obtain sealed information via motions to intervene in court: http://bit.ly/YmgCBP and http://bit.ly/14f1479
And aside from saying Curry lied about using info to benefit himself, another or to harm another, no news outlet has said what he's done. It's the public's right to know what charges are being brought against an ELECTED official, and I applaud LJ-World for their attempts in letting people know what's going on in Franklin County. While I believe he's innocent until proven guilty, public offices must be held accountable, regardless of what the public thinks or says.
Big enough to be charged with a felony.
Third DUI is a felony. Shoot, disconnecting the odometer on your car to lower the milage is a felony. There are lots of felonies out there.
The misconduct is only a misdemenor. The making false information that is the felony. He is not charged with interfering with Law enforemcent. That would only be a misdemenor also since the orginal charge is a misdemnor KSA 21-5904. Do you think that everyone that lies to the police is charged with a felony?
"Curry and Deputy Jerrod W. Fredricks were arrested by special agents of the KBI on Wednesday and charged with felony counts of interference with a law enforcement officer." — LJW: http://www2.ljworld.com/news/2013/feb...
It doesn't say anything about him lieing. It says he used confidential information gained through his office for his or another person's gain, or to cause harm to another.
That usually means that he gave out criminal history or info about someone being investigated in a crime to make them look bad, loose a job or something on those lines.
Now ask yourself, if it is a crime for his office to give that info out, don't you think it would be a crime for the court to give that out too. If he gave info about your sealed criminal history to someone would you now want that info in the paper given to all.
We know enough of what he did to know he should not Sheriff. Which he is not anymore. He was held accountable. Now he is just like you and me. Except if you were charged with interfering with law enforcement you would still be able to get a job somewhere. I doubt he will work anywhere now. Story over.
Criminal charges by the state against anyone is public information. And that shouldn't matter simply because of one's station in life. Also, every county court building in Kansas has public access computers, which provide ALL citizens (newspapers included) court documents on concluded and pending court matters.
Furthermore, the newspapers are seeking information relating to Curry's charges — not the information that Curry used or obtained illegally. Curry resigned as a result of CIVIL charges brought against him, not criminal.
If he was concerned about working somewhere after his sheriff gig, maybe he shouldn't have prompted a 6-month Kansas Bureau of Investigation probe ... And we don't know enough of why he shouldn't be sheriff, which he himself decided. It's precisely why newspapers are heading to court to find out what prompted the criminal charges.
You're out of your element, Donny.
Haha — so simply because there's an investigation there should be charges brought against someone? Your logic is flawless. It's the nature of charges brought against him that are of significant public interest.
osage county sherrif dunn is worse.I say take them all down
