CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - The Wyoming Attorney General’s Office has filed papers in court seeking to remove Sublette County Sheriff Stephen Haskell from office.

Haskell faces separate criminal charges alleging he improperly billed the county for more than $11,000 in uniform purchases placed before he took office last year.

Gov. Matt Mead last month directed the attorney general’s office to take action to remove Haskell. The state filed the removal petition in Sublette County District Court last week.

Haskell has said he was blindsided by the criminal charges and expects to be cleared. An attempt to reach Haskell on Tuesday for comment on the removal petition was not immediately successful.
