Former Deputy Frank Shahadey

(TERRE HAUTE) - A Vigo County sheriff's deputy jailed in an alleged school contract kickback scheme has resigned as he seeks his release from custody.

Vigo County Sheriff Greg Ewing and lawyers for Frank Shahadey says he resigned after 37 years as a deputy.

The (Terre Haute) Tribune-Star reports that the 60-year Shahadey had been the sheriff's department liaison to the Vigo County School Corp. and also worked for it part-time. He and district director of facilities Franklin Fennell were arrested Nov. 2 and charged with theft or bribery of programs receiving federal funds. The complaint alleges both men obtained more than $5,000 in district funds.

The school board has fired both men.

An attorney for Shahadey says he now has no ability to represent himself as a law enforcement officer.
