Sharp Co. officer resigns after racy photos found

ASH FLAT, Ark. (AP) - Sharp County Sheriff Mark Counts says a detective in the sheriff's office has resigned after sexually explicit photos of him were found on a county-owned cell phone.

Counts told The Batesville Daily Guard http://bit.ly/Pcbo8S that Detective Sgt. Ken Guidry resigned Tuesday after the photos were brought to his attention by Guidry's wife. Counts says Guidry admitted sending the photos from his county-owned phone and has since left Arkansas.

The sheriff says Guidry turned in a letter of resignation after being told he could either resign or be fired.

Counts said the complaint is the first ever made against Guidry.
