Alabama attorney general sides with sheriff in dispute over pay

Posted: Updated:
CULLMAN COUNTY - AL -

A Cullman County sheriff has fought and won a legal battle over his salary with a recent opinion by the Alabama attorney general.  The opinion indicates that first-term sheriff, Mike Rainey, is entitled to the same pay has his predecessor, former sheriff Tyler Roden, who served 16 years. 

The decision means that Cullman County must work with Rainey, who is currently making just over $63,000 annually, to calculate how much back pay he is owed since assuming office in January 2011.  Rainey asked attorney general, Luther Strange, if he was entitled to receive the same base salary as Roden, who left office making $67,100 annually, along with all pay raises he received while in office.
