YORK, Pa. (AP) - A central Pennsylvania sheriff’s deputy has been fired and is now the subject of an unspecified investigation by the district attorney’s office.

York County Sheriff Rich Keuerleber (kew-er-LAY’-ber) says Wednesday that Sgt. Troy Senft has been fired. That happened Tuesday, but wasn’t announced until Wednesday.

The sheriff wouldn’t say what was being investigated, only that is recently came to his attention.

Senft, a 16-year veteran, has a defense attorney who says he’s cooperating with the investigation, but also won’t say what it’s about.

That attorney, Korey Leslie, says Senft has “served his country with great honor” in the military and the sheriff’s office. He says the ultimate decision on whether charges are filed rests with the district attorney, and that it would be “inappropriate” to say more about the investigation.
