YAKIMA, WA - The Yakima County Sheriff's Office is responding to criticism from a County Commissioner earlier this week. 

Last week, the Sheriff's Office settled a $250,000 lawsuit with Michelle Moore, who was assaulted by her estranged husband and former deputy Sean Moore. 

County Commissioner Mike Leita was quoted as saying the settlement causes concern about how the Sheriff's Office is being run. 

In a statement today the Sheriff's Office responded by saying they take great exception to the statement and always strive to provide great law enforcement services.
