JACKSON COUNTY, MS (WLOX)
Former Jackson County Sheriff's deputy Louie Miller has been cleared of wrongdoing. Miller tells WLOX News he received a letter from the state auditor's office saying there was no evidence that he broke any laws.
He was fired by former interim sheriff Charles Britt for allegedly violating department rules regarding the disposal of diesel fuel.
During the controversy, Britt dropped out of the race for sheriff after a taped conversation between he and Miller was made public.
Miller says he and his attorney are considering taking legal action against the sheriff's department and the county over his dismissal. Miller is currently running for district five supervisor.
