County Attorney Still May Face Possible Charges

Last week we reported that Sheridan County Attorney Matt Redle may be facing a criminal charge for an incident that occurred at the Sheridan County Courthouse December 11 involving Sheridan Advocacy and Resource Center Executive Director Bonnie Young. According to an investigation conducted by the Sheridan Police Department, Redle allegedly attempted to kick a coffee cup from Young’s hand and threw a paper coffee cup at her.

Young was not injured during the altercation. Sheridan Police Lieutenant Tom Ringley provided an update on the situation while he was a guest on our news talk show Public Pulse Wednesday.

Ringley said the investigation concluded that Redle violate the state’s “unlawful contact” statute, which is a misdemeanor. The 62-year-old Redle has served as Sheridan County Attorney for almost three decades, since 1987. His current term is set to expire in 2018.
