(TWIN FALLS, ID) – A former Minidoka County Sheriff has agreed to pay $950 in restitution for misusing public funds. Kevin Halverson will pay $400 for unauthorized fuel purchases and another $550 to cover the cost of the investigation. Halverson lost his job as a result of his guilty plea. He’s accused of using a county credit card to pay for the gas of a fellow employee, Alicia Daniel, with whom he was having an extramarital affair. Daniel, who faces an additional felony charge of forgery, will go to trial in February.
