Indicted Frederick County sheriff announces return to active duty. But was he really gone?

August 29, 2023

Frederick County Sheriff Chuck Jenkins announced he has reinstated himself to full duty status, four months after he said he was taking a leave of absence following his indictment by a federal grand jury on charges that accuse him of improperly helping a gun shop owner acquire machine guns. The announcement comes a few weeks after Jenkins’ attorneys said in court filings that he “continues to work daily, fulfilling his Constitutional Duty as the elected Sheriff of Frederick County … without his service pistol, at great personal risk to himself” and had resumed work after only “several days of sitting on the side lines.”
