From Dec. 1, 1944, to Dec. 31, 1952, my father was sheriff of Lancaster County. Times have certainly changed.
Daddy was a rather closed-mouthed individual, which worked sometimes, but caused him considerable anguish at other times.
The area media and The Lancaster News were critical because he rarely gave interviews or issued press releases on criminal cases.
Only in his later years did he confide that it was up to magistrates and judges to determine guilt and folks shouldn’t be tried in the court of public opinion.
