Today, Governor Doug Burgum accepted the recommendation from the Ward County Commission to dismiss the removal proceeding against former Ward County Sheriff Steve Kukowski. 

According to a release sent from the Governor’s office, Burgum’s decision was based on Kukowski’s resignation last week, which rendered the removal proceedings moot. 

Kukowski retired last week after a lengthy investigation into the death of an inmate at the Ward County Jail in October of 2014. 

Kukowski faced misdemeanor charges of refusing to perform a public duty and reckless endangerment related to the death of 25-year-old Dustin Irwin.
