ND-Sheriff Criminal Charges

ND-Sheriff Criminal Charges
Judge dismisses criminal charge against North Dakota sheriff
The Associated Press - January 10, 2018

BISMARCK, N.D. - A judge has thrown out a criminal charge against McKenzie County Sheriff Gary Schwartzenberger.

Schwartzenberger was charged in state court with misdemeanor misapplication of entrusted property, related to nearly $1,000 in disputed expenditures on a county credit card at a Las Vegas sheriffs' convention in 2015.

The Bismarck Tribune reports that South Central District Judge Sonna Anderson dismissed the charge on Monday.

Schwartzenberger was suspended from his sheriff's position in 2016 by then-Gov. Jack Dalrymple. The sheriff was reinstated by Gov. Doug Burgum last year after a special commissioner ruled there wasn't enough evidence to support his removal.
