Sheriff: Deputy steps down after admitting to taking funds

Posted:

FAYETTEVILLE (WVVA) – A Fayette County Sheriff's Deputy has resigned after admitting to taking funds from a pair of organizations, Sheriff Steve Kessler says.

Sgt. Stephen Gray admitted to taking an undisclosed amount of money from the Deputy Sheriff's Association and the New River Tactical Unit.

It happened after the groups held a concealed weapons class as a fundraiser for a local family.

Kessler says he gave Gray the opportunity to quit or he would be fired. Gray elected to stepped down.

It will now be up to the individual groups whether to press charges against Gray.
