LITCHFIELD - The criminal case against a former Meeker County sheriff’s deputy has been delayed while he seeks treatment.
Travis Sebring, 33, of Grove City, was granted a delay Feb. 8 in Meeker County District Court, in part so he can enter inpatient treatment through U.S. Veterans Affairs.
Sebring was working for the Meeker County Sheriff’s Office in January when he was arrested on suspicion of stealing drugs from an unwanted drug drop box and toys from a community toy drive.
He was charged with three felony counts of fifth-degree possession of a controlled substance, a felony charge for theft, a gross misdemeanor for misconduct of a public officer or employee and two petty misdemeanors for marijuana and drug paraphernalia possession.
In a Feb. 4 written request to the Meeker County Court Administrator from Kelly Kirchner, the assistant to Sebring’s attorney, Kirchner cites a prior scheduling conflict as well as the treatment as reasons for requesting a change in the court date.
Kirchner told court administration that the in-patient treatment “is expected to continue from 30 to 45 days on a dual diagnosis therapy.”
The initial appearance hearing has been rescheduled for April 19.
