A Benewah County Sheriff's Deputy is on leave after the Idaho POST opened an investigation on that deputy's certification.

The officer has been on leave from the sheriff's office since the beginning of October according to Benewah County Sheriff Tony Eells.

If in fact the deputy fraudulently acquired his POST certification he should be held accountable and every arrest/conviction he made while being a deputy should be vacated immediately. Good to see the karma bus coming for corrupt and unethical law people. You should do a story on the probation officer that was recently fired too!!
