Iowa Supreme Court won't take deputy case


CHARLES CITY (AP) -- The Iowa Supreme Court won't review the case of a Floyd County sheriff's deputy who was fired after being charged with a crime but was later found not guilty.

Darin Leroy Crooks was charged April 12, 2007, with two counts of supplying alcohol to a minor and was fired that day. He appealed to the county Civil Service Commission and while that request was pending, a jury found him not guilty of criminal charges.

The commission later upheld his firing as did the Floyd County District Court, but the court ruled he was entitled to back pay.

In 2009, the appeals court upheld his firing and ruled the county didn't owe back pay. Crooks appealed to the Supreme Court, but that request was denied. Floyd County Sheriff Rick Lynch says that ruling ends the matter.
