LOVE COUNTY, Oklahoma -

Love County Sheriff Joe Russell has pleaded not guilty to complaints of maintaining a house where meth was kept, and harboring a fugitive.

Russell was arrested on Tuesday, July 19, after a grand jury recommended he be removed from office.

The grand jury alleges Russell maintained a house where methamphetamine was kept and used, that he allowed a woman wanted by police to live in his home, and that he allowed a jail inmate to meet with family in a deputy's office where evidence is stored with no law officers present.
