Gee guys do you not know that John Ledford was fired from ALE? He was caught gambling in a Federal sting in 1998...around the same time he ran for sheriff in Madison County. He likes to tell the idiots over in Madison that he resigned.
Kip left Madison Sheriff department because of Buddy Harwood and Denny Goforth- both thugs
That whole Goforth are likened to a pack of little weasels.They are sneaky as heLL and have a vicious bite but they run and hide when cornered.

Sheriff John Ledford is one of the best Sheriff's I know and a good friend. I am certain at the time Sheriff Ledford hired Gaddy he made it clear that he would not tolerate a repeated offense in terms of conduct such as DWI. It appears to me that the Sheriff hasn't tolerated it either, Gaddy no longer works there. It should be noted by all that choose to be so critical, there is no perfect science to hiring people-- people, police officers or not are human beings and yes they some times make poor decisions and pay for them accordingly just like anyone else. If we had a crystal ball it would be an easy job from where the Sheriff sits (in terms of hiring) but that is not the case, He and all LE Executives take a chance with every person they hire and try to the best of their ability to hire good people. The people of Madison County are lucky to have such a dedicated professional running their law enforcement services!

Agree, they make all the money and get the opportunity to haul the governor around every now and then.
