The attorney general’s office has charged Assistant Nye County Sheriff Rick Marshall with taking down campaign signs, a misdemeanor.
The signs urged Nye County residents to vote for “Anybody but Rick for Sheriff.”
Marshall, 56, of Pahrump was video-taped removing a sign belonging to the political action committee Citizens to Elect an Ethical Nye County Sheriff.
When arrested, he was found in possession of three of the signs, each valued at about $3. A spokesman for the AG’s office said the maximum penalty for damaging property valued at less than $25 is a $500 fine.
Marshall will appear in court Sept. 9.
