OTTAWA, Kan. (AP) -- An eastern Kansas sheriff who is facing criminal charges says he will resign after the end of the month.

The Kansas City Star (http://bit.ly/11oGgcB) reports Franklin County Sheriff Jeffry Curry announced Thursday through his attorney that he will be leaving office effective April 1.

That prompted the county prosecutor's office to announce a petition to remove Curry from office will be dismissed April 2.

Curry and deputy Jerrod Fredricks are charged with one felony count of interference with law enforcement for allegedly providing false information to investigators.

Curry also is facing a misdemeanor official misconduct charge accusing him of using confidential information to benefit himself or someone else.

Curry has been with the Sheriff's Office since 1994 and was appointed in sheriff in 2012 before being elected last year.
