A former sheriff and three former undersheriffs are calling for the resignation of Harvey County Sheriff A.J. Wuthnow in a letter to the editor released to The Newton Kansan Tuesday.

Former Sheriff Byron Motter and former undersheriffs Max Gilbert, Mike Watkins and Steve Bayless all signed the letter that asked for Wuthnow’s immediate resignation.

Motter, who was the treasurer on Wuthnow’s failed bid for the Republican nomination for sheriff, said he regretted staying silent so long on issues he said he found troubling at the sheriff’s department.
