Deputy Back At Work

Accusing Sheriff and State's Attorney or Wrongdoing

Minot, ND - A Ward County deputy who has accused the sheriff of discrimination and the state's attorney of sexual harassment is back on the job.

Tim Poston claims Sheriff Bob Barnard discriminated against him because of his Canadian heritage.

And Poston says State's Attorney Roza Larson improperly put her hand on his leg while talking with him during a brief conference in a court hearing.

Poston took his charges public at the most recent county commission meeting two weeks ago.
Larson says Poston's charges are in retaliation for the deputy's being placed on leave after an incident at the jail where Poston is seen slamming a table into an inmate.

Poston had been on paid leave since his appearance before the county board, but returned to work today.

Meanwhile, County Commission Chair Larry Louser has refused to allow Poston a spot on the agenda for next Tuesday's county board meeting, saying further communication on the issues needs to be between attorneys for the two sides.
