Spokane County Sheriff's Detective resigns in lieu of termination

Posted: Updated:

SPOKANE COUNTY, Wash.- The Spokane County Sheriff's office announced Wednesday afternoon that a Spokane County Sheriff's Detective is resigning, effective Saturday, August 16. The release says Detective Dave Herrin chose to resign, to avoid being terminated.

Detective Herrin was placed on paid administrative leave last June after allegations of misconduct were reported. Herrin was accused of filling out his daughter's deer tag in 2013 and then lying to wildlife investigators about it during a subsequent investigation.

Court records show Herrin told wildlife officers that his 12-year-old daughter shot a deer in Stevens County in 2013. But Herrin later said a friend had actually shot the deer and offered to let him take the animal.

Herrin said in court records that he made a "dumb mistake" by putting his daughter's tag on the animal.

Herrin had been assigned as a property crimes detective and has been with the Sheriff's Office for 25 years.
