ELECTION 2018: Candidates for Nelson County sheriff differ on details

The candidates for Nelson County sheriff offered contrasting views Monday night that mostly focused on the details of how to accomplish goals like approaching the Crystal Rogers investigation and combating drugs in the county.

Republican Todd Harper advocated for hiring a detective to work the Rogers case full-time.

“I do believe we need to have a detective solely investigating that case,” Harper said.

He said in talking to voters during his campaign, that case has come up often, and voters want it solved.
