Former Pike County Sheriff Charles Reader, who is now serving a state prison sentence for theft in office, is being sued by county officials over salary and benefits they say he improperly collected.
Pike County claims Reader should repay more than $128,000 he collected while suspended from his job.
It’s not known if Reader has retained an attorney to represent him in the litigation.
Reader was sentenced in March to a three-year term. He had risen to prominence for the Pike County investigation of the Rhoden family murders.
