RICHMOND, MO – A former Carroll County deputy has been charged with 6 counts of sexual assault out of Ray County.

A warrant was issued last Saturday against William Cringan, 37, of Henrietta.  He was discharged from duty approximately two weeks prior to charges being filed against him because of inability to complete a probationary period.  Court records indicate six charges of statutory sodomy in the second degree.  A motion for change of judge was filed Friday in the case.

Bond is set at $50,000.
