Kidder County sheriff's court appearance waived
The initial court appearance of Kidder County Sheriff Doug Howard scheduled for Monday was waived, according to Barb Steinke, Kidder County recorder and court clerk.
Howard was charged in July with three counts of corrupt practices and one of disorderly conduct. The three corrupt practices charges are Class A misdemeanors and stem from complaints that allege he used economic coercion against Deputy John Lemieux, who is running against him in the upcoming general election.
