Description

A reporter discovered some strange financial dealings related to Ralph Baker who had been sheriff of Madison County since 1973. He kept no records of the drugs he seized, did not obtain court orders for the drugs he destroyed, and kept no log of destructions. In the past five years, he and his deputies have signed out about 25,000 for the payment of drug informants.
