Statement from AG Yost on Indictment of Pike County Sheriff



(COLUMBUS, Ohio) — The following statement may be attributed to Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost regarding the indictment of Pike County Sheriff Charles Reader:

“This will have no impact on the Wagner capital murder cases, as Sheriff Reader was not the primary witness for any issue of fact or law. Ohio sheriffs act with integrity and honor, and this rare occurrence does not reflect the excellent work they do daily throughout their counties.”
