Carbon County may be without a sheriff soon.
County leaders suspect that Sheriff James Cordova no longer lives there and has moved to his new house in St. George, which would breach the requirement that elected officials live in their jurisdictions and would negate his right to hold the office.
"It just looks like he's not here," Commissioner Jae Potter said Wednesday. Cordova will have a chance to defend himself at a meeting at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday.
If ousted, the Carbon County Democratic Party would appoint a new sheriff, though Potter could not speculate on who that would be.
