Impeachment - Sheriffs Gone Bad

Blogger Comments:  We have seen only one sheriff impeached and indicted on multiple felony counts in almost 50 years.  Check out the story of Alabam Sheriff Tyrone Clark at the URL below.

Clark is charged with the following crimes.  Is that all?  

  • Two separate counts that forbid sheriff from using county inmates from working on personal property (one count for each home)
  • First-degree promoting prison contraband
  • Second-degree promoting prison contraband
  • Criminal conspiracy to commit a controlled substance crime
  • First-degree human trafficking
  • First-degree perjury, which stems from alleged false testimony Clark gave to a Sumter County Grand Jury
When sheriffs in Alabama get dirty they smell really bad.  That's when the hounds come in and clean up the stink.

LIVINGSTON, Ala. (AP) — A former west Alabama sheriff removed from office by impeachment is now facing multiple criminal charges.
Sumter County District Attorney Greg Griggers says former Sumter County Sheriff Tyrone Clark has been arrested on eight felonies and two misdemeanor charges.

Impeached Sumter County sheriff booked into jail on 10 charges, including 8 felonies 
Clark is accused of using his office for personal gain, plus promoting prison contraband, human trafficking and perjury. He's also charged with conspiring to commit a drug crime.

Clark has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing. The Alabama Supreme Court removed him from office in July for corruption.


An earlier grand jury report said Clark allowed an inmate to have special privileges while awaiting trial on drug charges. Among other things, the report said the prisoner was allowed to have drugs and sex with female visitors in jail.

  1. I read the court recording of Mr. Bradly's hearing. My question is why hasn't anybody mentioned the transcribing Cindy Crowell did for Ana on the audio tapes. My understanding is that they were not verbatim? Isn't that tampering with evidence?

  3. Poor Puckett will have to have a big ok garage sale when Ana leaves. Maybe he can get a good bid on dolly parton wig
