  • KELLEY CRADDUCK: To work in law enforcement again.
KNWA reports that former Benton County Sheriff Kelley Cradduck who resigned following a misdemeanor guilty plea to end an evidence-tampering investigation, has been hired by the Carroll County sheriff's office.

He's supposed to be going to work in three weeks.

At the time of his arrest in January 2016, reports said he was being investigated for backdating hiring records of a jailer who was a friend of his son and living with the family.

Cradduck got six months' probation and a $500 fine a plea deal that saw a felony tampering charge dropped. There was disagreement at the time between prosecution and defense on whether the conviction meant Cradduck could never hold public office again. His lawyer said he could if his record was expunged following probation.
