STERLING, Colo. (AP) — A rural Colorado sheriff is facing sexual assault and misconduct allegations.
Sedgwick County Sheriff Tom Hanna is due to appear in court Wednesday afternoon in Sterling, in the northeast corner of the state.
District Attorney Brittny Lewton said Hanna was arrested at his office Tuesday on suspicion of first-degree official misconduct, sexual assault on an at risk person, sexual assault by a correctional officer and solicitation of prostitution. She declined to elaborate on what he's accused of doing.
Hanna has not been charged and it's not clear if he has a lawyer yet.
He was originally taken to the Logan County jail in Sterling, which houses some inmates arrested by Hanna's department, but later moved to Weld County.
