Heavy-handed small town sheriff investigated in hit-and-run

And when it makes the news, he asks a longtime State Attorney friend to investigate it for him

Gotta love it.

Probably figured it was better too be investigated for a hit and run than a DUI

Janklow ended up getting some prison time didn't he? (Not much though IIRC). Wasn't it a fatality? Car v Motorcycle?

Reading the readers comments on these two stories gives you the feeling that this type of crap goes on all the time in Wakulla county. I can't see what story Sheriff Harvey can come up with to justify leaving the scene.

Probably the same one used by Kennedy in the Chappaquiddick–– Mary Jo Kopecnic case...
