Mike Byrd Ordered to Pay by Federal Jury

A federal jury ordered former Jackson County Sheriff Mike Byrd to pay $260,000 for damages in the emotional distress of a female deputy.
Byrd is accused of sexually harassing a female deputy and threatening to demote her when she refused his advances.
The jury reached its verdict today after three days of testimony. Sergeant Kristan Siebert filed the suit in April 2014, nearly two weeks after Byrd was sentenced on criminal charges.
