Klamath County Sheriff Skrah in court on contempt hearing

Klamath Falls, Ore. – Klamath County Sheriff Frank Skrah was in court Thursday.

He’s accused of violating the conditions of a release agreement.

Skrah was indicted just over a year ago on 9 misdemeanor charges.

As part of his release agreement, the Sheriff agreed not to go on patrol, or take part in any traffic stops or criminal investigations.

The State says Skrah violated those conditions a dozen times – playing 911 tapes of Skrah on air.

Skrah’s defense attorney argues the exact nature of Skrah’s business can’t be determined from the radio traffic.

If found guilty, Skrah could have his officer’s license revoked, or face other fines or sanctions.

The contempt hearing is scheduled to continue Friday.
