MORGAN COUNTY, AL (WAFF) - The Morgan Co. Sheriff's Office is addressing concerns over its funding of narcotics investigators.

Sheriff Ana Franklin issued a statement on Facebook on Tuesday explaining the situation, going into detail about the office's funding from the Alabama Department of Economics and Community Affairs (ADECA) and its attempts to gain more funding.

This statement comes after the sheriff was in court on Friday regarding allegations against Leon Bradley, who has had charges filed against him for allegedly sending sensitive information to a blogger who is critical of Franklin and her deputies, according to our news partners at the Decatur Daily.

Franklin was first elected as Morgan Co. Sheriff in 2010.
