Sheriff Pleads Not Guilty

     From the Mobile Press-Register:
Washington County Sheriff Richard Stringer formally pleaded not guilty Wednesday to charges that he helped an employee evade Social Security rules capping the amount of retirement money he could earn.
Authorities allege that Stringer agreed to put the employee’s wife on the payroll at the Sheriff’s Office and divert part of the man’s income to her.
Stinger has denied the allegations and vowed to remain in office.
