“It was a difficult decision,” Prickett, 56, said today, 24 hours after handing in his resignation, “but the sheriff and I have been talking about it for awhile.

“I didn’t go looking for the job, but I was approached awhile back. I didn’t take it seriously but they came back and offered me the job.”
