Update: No New Job in Carroll Co. After All for Former Benton Co. Sheriff

Update:
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KNWA) -- Former Benton County Sheriff Kelly Cradduck won't work for the Carroll County Sheriff's Office after all. 

On Wednesday, we learned he had been hired by the Carroll County Sheriff's Office and would start in three weeks. 

Now, Carroll County Sheriff Randy Mayfield said they both agreed it's in the best interest of everyone if he didn't work for the sheriff's office. 

"Many have since expressed their concern about Mr. Cradduck serving with the CCSO. I have heard and respect these concerns, as has Mr. Cradduck. He and I spoke earlier today, and we both agree that it is in the best interest of all that he not be a deputy with the CCSO," Mayfield said. 

Cradduck has been investigated by the FBI on suspicion of tampering with evidence. He eventually resigned and pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of tampering with evidence. For that, he was given six months probation. 

Mayfield said Cradduck's misdemeanor charge of tampering with evidence was expunged from his record, and that means the conduct never occurred.
