Floyd County Sheriff John K. Blackburn will resign this week, according to reports.
Earlier this year, the sheriff was arrested and sentenced to four days in jail for a DUI.
Sheriff-elect John Hunt will be sworn in as Sheriff this week, according to reports.
Hunt won the Democratic nomination for Sheriff in the May primary. Republican Joey Collins, who would have challenged Hunt in November, dropped out of the race in July.
Hunt will serve the remainder of
Blackburn's term, and barring a write-in candidate, will
be Sheriff for the next four years.
