Chief Deputy Ken Broadus Named Acting Jackson County Sheriff

PASCAGOULA, Miss. — There is a new sheriff in Jackson County, Chief Deputy Ken Broadus. He was appointed to serve as acting sheriff by county supervisors Thursday after former Sheriff Mike Byrd was forced to resigned after pleading guilty a charge of witness tampering. Thirty other charges against Byrd were dropped, 29 of those were felonies. He will be sentenced on March 11, 2014 in Mississippi, which happens to be the same day he will be sentenced for a witness tampering charge that he plead guilty to in Alabama last week.

According to the Sun Herald, Broadus, who has been with the Sheriff’s department for 24 years, says he is interested in serving as interim sheriff, but does not plan on running for the position. Also, Broadus says he has spoken to Jackson County police chiefs about rejoining the Narcotics Task Force. Nearly all of them left the task force when Byrd was in office
