By a decisive margin, voters in Dundy County, Nebraska, Tuesday decided to recall Sheriff CJ Smith.
Smith was elected in 2022, but was not a Nebraska certified law enforcement officer at the time. State law allows for a non-certified person to be elected sheriff, but requires that they receive training and earn certification within eight months. Smith failed to get certified, 1011Now reports.
Smith has also filed a lawsuit against the state and Dundy County in an effort to keep his job.
