NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. — A sheriff's deputy whose workers' compensation claim was denied by a judge who questioned his veracity won reinstatement to the Pasco payroll Wednesday.
Sheriff Bob White settled a lawsuit filed Tuesday on behalf of Steven Sickles in which the deputy accused the sheriff of effectively firing him by placing him on unpaid suspension two days after the judge issued her ruling.
