Sussex County Sheriff Jeff Christopher is currently appealing the Superior Court's decision against him in his lawsuit against the county and the state up to the Delaware Supreme Court. In the meantime, he's getting help from some Constitutional organizations to teach residents about what the role of the Sheriff is under the Constitution.
On Saturday, the Institute on the Constitution, based in Pasadena, Maryland, will host a "Sheriff and Citizen" Summit at Del Tech in Georgetown. Sheriff Christopher will be joined by attorney and Institute co-founder Michael Anthony Peroutka, along with retired Sheriff Richard Mack of Graham County, Arizona. Sheriff Mack is best known for taking on the Clinton Administration over the Brady Bill. Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Arizona was scheduled to attend, but won't be able to because of a broken arm and dislocated shoulder.
Summit attendees will be taught about the Constitutional role and duties of the Sheriff. Attendees will also get Constitutional training for Sheriff's and Peace Officers, as well as for the Sheriff's Posse. The summit will run from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. It's free to attend, but lunch will cost $15. To register for the summit, call The American View at (866) 730-9796.
