New Jefferson County Sheriff

March 5th, 2013

The Jefferson County Commission has appointed Jefferson County Board of Education president Peter H. Dougherty as the new sheriff.

Dougherty, who works in Washington, D. C. for the Veterans Administration, will fill the unexpired term of Robert Shirley, who resigned as a result of a 2010 incident. Shirley is awaiting sentencing for violating the civil rights of a bank robber.

Dougherty will fill the sheriff’s position until the general election in 2014.
