Sheriff Michael Dixon on job after peace officer's license revoked
COLUMBIA - Osage County Sheriff Michael Dixon remains at work following the loss of his peace officer's license Monday.
Osage County Presiding Commissioner David Dudenhoeffer confirmed Dixon has not resigned despite being asked to. Dudenhoeffer said Dixon has 30 days from the day his license was removed to file an appeal for reinstatement. He expects Dixon to file an appeal Tuesday.
Dixon pleaded guilty in July to harassing a Belle police officer. In exchange for a guilty plea, prosecutors dropped charges of tampering with a motor vehicle, sexual misconduct and assault and stalking.
Dixon is required to serve two years supervised probation and ordered not to have any contact with the victim. He is also required to undergo drug and alcohol treatment, complete a sexual harassment training course, and is not allowed to consume alcohol or be in a bar unless required by his job.
