In an ongoing saga, the latest McIntosh County Sheriff has resigned from office.
Sheriff Joe Hogan was being investigated by the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, at the request of the local District Attorney's office. There were allegations that his wife, Jeanie, a convicted felon, may have illegally carried a firearm and worn a badge and uniform. Hogan married her in October. There were also questions about a reserve deputy, 'Manny' Day, who moved from Las Vegas with Hogan's wife Jeanie, and lives with the couple. Day was ticketed in February for driving with suspended Nevada drivers license.
Hogan had been appointed by the board of McIntosh County Commissioners in June of 2009 to replace then Sheriff Terry Jones and Undersheriff Mykol Brookshire, who went to prison for pocketing cash taken in a traffic stop in May of 2009.
There's some typical 'Little Dixie' corruption for you, folks.
The office of sheriff will not be filled until the next election - filing is this June. Undersheriff Mike Daniels will operate the office until then.
