AR: Arkansas sheriff to resign over hunting violation
August 17, 2014
SHERIDAN — Grant County Sheriff Ray Vance announced Friday that
he would resign Monday because of his 2010 hunting violation in
Kansas, according to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette. But because the
charge has been expunged and he is running unopposed, Vance will be
re-elected in November and return to the office in January.
Vance entered a no-contest plea on Nov. 3, 2010, to one count of
false representation to secure a lifetime Kansas hunting license. In
February, a special prosecutor filed a petition to remove Vance from
office because he said the misdemeanor crime rose to the level of an
"infamous crime," which includes an offense involving the elements
of deceit or dishonesty.
