The News-Journal filed a complaint with the Attorney General’s Office on Monday morning about Upshur County Sheriff Larry Webb’s handling of a request for a high-profile offense report earlier this month.
Late Monday afternoon, the newspaper received a certified letter, dated Dec. 12, from Webb saying he will send information in an assault complaint against District Clerk Karen Bunn to the Attorney General’s Office seeking verification that it can withhold part of the Nov. 14 offense report.
The report, by courthouse maintenance crew member Ricky Freeman, accuses Bunn of assault on a public servant, a third-degree felony.
