KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. (AP) - Klamath County Sheriff Frank Skrah is not responding to a call from county commissioners that he go on leave pending the outcome of a criminal investigation of him by the state Attorney General’s Office.

Instead, on Thursday he released a copy of a letter he sent to the county’s lawyer suggesting eight patrol deputies who asked to be put on leave over alleged retaliation by him should give up their badges and guns, because he can’t properly supervise them. He also said neither he nor any of his deputies have been involved in any misconduct requiring disciplinary action.

Earlier this week the state Department of Justice said it was conducting a criminal investigation on Skrah, but wouldn’t say what it was about. He has not been charged.
