BENTONVILLE, Ark. (AP) - A hearing has been scheduled for Benton County Sheriff Kelley Cradduck, who faces felony and misdemeanor tampering charges.

The Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1SBvxGt ) that Special Judge Randy Wright scheduled the hearing for next Friday.

Cradduck’s attorney declined comment on the hearing while the prosecutor and the judge could not be reached for comment.

Cradduck is accused of falsifying an employee payroll request and instructing his assistant to lie about it to Arkansas State Police investigators. He has pleaded not guilty.

Cradduck has submitted his resignation as county sheriff, but an interim has not been appointed and his duties are being performed by Chief Deputy Richie Connor.
