Crawford County jail

Kenneth Saulsbery, the warden of Crawford County’s jail, has resigned from the post.

Saulsbery resigned from the job last week, Francis Weiderspahn Jr., chairman of Crawford County Commissioners, and David Mitchell, the labor attorney for Crawford County, confirmed this morning.

Saulsbery had been put on paid administrative leave on Oct. 1, “but it was not a disciplinary action,” Mitchell said.

“He did resign, but it was not a suspension or disciplinary action in any way,” Mitchell said.

Mitchell, Weiderspahn and Crawford County District Attorney Francis Schultz, who heads the Crawford County Prison Board, all declined comment on the resignation.

“I can’t comment because it’s a personnel matter — I can’t comment any further,” Mitchell said.

Jack Greenfield, the jail’s deputy warden, currently is serving as the acting warden, Weiderspahn confirmed.

“The prison board has not met to discuss how to go about a search for a new warden,” Weiderspahn said.

The Crawford County Prison Board is scheduled to meet Oct. 24.
