Sheriff Kevin Henderson resigns in Ontario County

Sheriff Kevin Henderson has resigned.

Last week officials were told that Sheriff Henderson would resign – but that no resignation letter had been received. The Sheriff has been the central component of an investigation into a toxic work environment and allegations of sexual harassment.




On Wednesday, September 29, Attorney Eugene Welch, who is representing Sheriff Henderson released the following statement:

“Representatives of the Ontario County Sheriff Kevin Henderson and Ontario County recently met and determined that it is in the best interest of the Sheriff, his family, and the employees of Ontario County that the Sheriff resign his office effective immediately. Neither the Sheriff nor the County have any additional statement regarding the Sheriff’s resignation.”

No other information was immediately available.
