Former Sumter County sheriff pleads guilty to criminal ethics, drug charges

A former West Alabama sheriff who was removed from office in 2016 has pleaded guilty to eight criminal charges.

Former Sumter County Sheriff Tyrone Clark pleaded guilty Monday to eight criminal charges including ethics violations and drug charges. He was removed from office in July 2016 by the Alabama Supreme Court after he was impeached for corruption and willful neglect of duty.

District Attorney Greg Griggers announced the plea after an investigation into the operation of the county jail under Clark and his dealing with inmates. Clark had been indicted by a grand jury on the criminal charges in August 2016.

Circuit Court Judge Eddie Hardaway Jr. will sentence Clark on Jan. 9.
