    A criminal complaint filed against New York Governor Andrew Cuomo could lead to a misdemeanor charge, or "possibly a couple," the Albany County sheriff said during a Saturday press conference.  The criminal complaint was filed by Cuomo's former aide — one of 11 women accusing Cuomo of sexual harassment. She filed her accusations with the county sheriff just days after the New York state attorney general released the results of a blistering investigation, which found that the governor had "engaged in a pattern of inappropriate conduct" with her, including multiple incidents of groping. Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple said his office will now undertake a criminal investigation based on the aide's complaint. Apple detailed the next steps, which he said would include further investigation before he could make a determination about possible criminal charges.

    Albany County Sheriff Aaron Appelhans is the state of Wyoming's first Black sheriff. In the aftermath of several widely-publicized and equally gutwrenching police killings, the state of Wyoming’s first Black sheriff has his eye on not only diversifying the police force but changing police culture. “We've got ‘cops’ as a nickname," Albany County Sheriff Aaron Appelhans told The Associated Press. "We're not ‘cops.’ I'm listed, just like every other deputy here is listed, as a peace officer. We're here to keep the peace. And so that's really kind of one of the big changes I've wanted to have law enforcement focus on.” Appelhans has his work cut out for him in a country where only 5% of sheriffs are Black, a state that has a Black population of less than 2%, and a county in which jail officials allegedly joked about a gay man’s murder and called Black people monkeys.  So the saying from Austrian business consultant Peter Drucker goes, “culture eats strategy for breakfast.” This is especially true of police culture, University of Texas at Austin assistant sociology professor Michael Sierra-Arévalo wrote last summer.

    LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — A judge has granted a request to extend a deadline to replace a Wyoming sheriff. A deadline this Thursday to replace Albany County Sheriff Dave O’Malley was too soon after the county commission accepted O'Malley's resignation Sept. 15 to properly vet candidates to take his place when he retires Jan. 2, Albany County Democrats said in a lawsuit filed Monday. The Democrats and commission must suspend the process of choosing O'Malley's successor until Oct. 15, District Judge Tori R.A. Kricken ordered Tuesday. Kricken scheduled a hearing Oct. 14 and promised in court documents a quick follow-up ruling. Kricken didn't yet rule on the lawsuit itself. Wyoming law requires a sheriff to be selected within 15 days of an office becoming vacant. The sheriff's political party chooses finalists from which the county commission names the next sheriff. The Democrats' lawsuit amounted to “political maneuvering” to postpone the appointment until after the upcoming election, Albany County Attorney Peggy Trent wrote in a response filed in court Tuesday. A Democrat, an independent and two Republicans, including an incumbent commissioner,...
