Osage County Sheriff will stand trial

The felony tampering with a vehicle case against the Osage County Sheriff will go to trial.

Sheriff Michael Dixon was in Osage County Court Friay. The felony charge of tampering with a motor vehicle stems from an incident where Dixon allegedly used a four-wheeler without the ownerâ??s permission.

His next court appearance is January 3rd, 2014, but could be pushed back until a judge from another county is found to avoid a conflict of interest.
