LANSING, Mich. — Hillsdale County Undersheriff Carl Albright was suspended for two weeks in August resulting from "unethical" practices.
Albright was suspended without pay for forging the county treasurer’s name to paperwork needed to purchase two new patrol vehicles in July.
The incident that resulted in the suspension happened in mid-July.
In mid-July, Albright received notification from Ford Motor Credit that paperwork and a first check were due at their office by July 22.
Hillsdale Daily News reported that Albright was unable to get a hold of Hillsdale County Treasurer Stephanie Kyser to get her signature for the necessary paperwork and check.
The Hillsdale County Board of Commissioners suspended Albright after learning of the forged signature.
Upon further review they came to the conclusion that Albright did not have any malicious intent or personal gain by signing the forms, and therefore the suspension was enough punishment for his actions.
Albright is back on the job after his suspension.
