TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Tulsa County Sheriff Vic Regalado has filed paperwork seeking a full, four-year term two days after being sworn into office.

Regalado was sworn in on Monday after winning a special general election on April 5. The Republican sheriff is serving the final nine months of former Sheriff Stanley Glanz’s term. Glanz resigned last November after being indicted on a misdemeanor charge of failing to release an internal report about his agency, among other accusations.

The Tulsa World reports (https://bit.ly/263uPG9) Democrat Arthur Jackson, whose candidacy for last week’s election was tossed out by the Tulsa County Election Board, has filed his paperwork for the June 28 primary. Jackson is a registered Democrat, but he filed as an independent in the special election.

Sheriff’s Deputy Charles Crow has also filed to run as a Republican. The filing deadline is 5 p.m. Friday.
