Minidoka County Sheriff Charged with Felony

Minidoka County

RUPERT, Idaho (AP) — The sheriff of Minidoka County has been charged with a felony for misusing public funds. The charge was filed Friday against Kevin Halverson after an investigation conducted by the Idaho Attorney General’s office.

KTVB-TV reports the case against Halverson involves accusations he used county transaction cards to buy gasoline for personal purposes between November 2012 and January 2013. The complaint filed in the case indicates the purchases were less than $300 and alleges the gasoline was purchased for another female county employee.

The sheriff told investigators he never used his county-issued credit card for unreimbursed personal purchases because he knew that would be fraudulent. Halverson did not immediately return a telephone message left Friday by The Associated Press. Halverson is scheduled to be arraigned on the charge July 18.
