Oxford County residents shocked by revelations about sheriff
OXFORD (WGME) – Some Oxford residents call Sheriff Gallant's behavior a "slap in the face,” and a veteran says he's glad the sheriff resigned, saying he should be held to a higher standard.
In his two-sentence resignation letter, former Oxford County Sheriff Wayne Gallant states he had mixed emotions about making the decision to resign, and people in Oxford County who elected Gallant say they feel the same way.
Elected in 2006, Gallant was in the middle of serving in his third term as sheriff. Oxford County residents we spoke with Wednesday night say they're still in shock about everything that's been revealed about Gallant over the last two weeks.
CBS 13 reached out to Gallant’s lawyer, as well as the county's, but didn't hear back.
