Prosecutors: Ex-Sheriff Found with Drugs in Jail
It isn't clear how Martin got the drugs or whether he'll face new charges. Martin was convicted in 2010 after witnesses testified he was on duty when he supplied a drug dealer with marijuana pilfered from the department's evidence locker. Authorities alleged after Martin was jailed on drug counts, he plotted to have two potential witnesses assaulted and possibly killed. Neither was harmed.
