ELBERT COUNTY, Colo — An Elbert County sheriff's deputy who was fired earlier this year claims the department is rife with corruption, including unjustified arrests, on-the-job drinking and strip searches of women while deputies watched.

Those allegations are included in a letter of intent to sue, dated June 14, 2007, sent by William R. Sherman to Sheriff William Frangis and some of his command staff.
