Deputy resigns to avoid termination

Facing termination, a detective who had been with the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office for 25 years has resigned following an internal investigation into accusations of poaching and lying to investigators. David Herrin, a property crimes detective, was accused of filling his daughter’s deer tag in 2013 and lying to investigators about it. He was placed on paid administrative leave in June while the Sherriff’s Office conducted an investigation. Fish and Wildlife officers became aware of the violation after being told by Herrin’s ex-wife that Herrin had been using deer tags belonging to their son and daughter. Herrin’s termination is effective Aug. 16, the sheriff’s office said in a news release. Herrin was charged with poaching and lying to investigators in Steven County.
