The charges date back to 1992, and include harassing communications, harassment, domestic violence and violation of a protection order in 2011. The charge was later dismissed.
The President of the Constables Association in Mobile County, Darrell Carter called the case a setback for the group which is trying to improve its image.
“It’s just one of those things you going to have to learn from, and grow from. It’s set back on where we’re trying to go as a whole, but no agency is exempt from this kind of thing happening,” Carter said.
Sheffield provides some information about himself on his public facebook page. His profile indicates he’s worked as a boilermaker out of Local 112, he attended Faulkner State Community College, and Satsuma High School. He makes no mention of past law enforcement affiliation.
