Faulkner County sheriff's race still clouded by federal investigation

Posted: Updated:

The tumultuous race for Faulkner County sheriff comes to a close Tuesday, though a federal investigation into a political plot to derail a candidate's campaign continues.

A candidate who left the race before the primary election was subject of a federal investigation, and a closed case involving yet another candidate and sexual misconduct allegations was brought into the public eye.

Sheriff's Maj. Andy Shock, the Republican candidate on the ballot, overcame three challengers to secure his candidacy, and the fraudulent accusation that he fathered a child with a Texarkana woman and failed to pay child support.
