Breckinridge County has a new interim Sheriff after the retirement of controversial former Sheriff Todd Pate. Judge Executive Maurice Lucas appointed Billy Richardson in the role on Monday. Judge Lucas says he believes Richardson will bring a youthful energy to the position, and will be a good role model for children in the community. Richardson ran against Pate for the Sheriff position last election losing by only a few votes. Richardson will be on the ballot for the position in the elections this November.
