PUSHMATAHA COUNTY, OK -- A former Pushmataha County Sheriff, Elvin Flood, 65, was back in court Thursday. Flood is facing formal arraignment for charges of hiding official records.

Flood was in court on Wednesday for his preliminary hearing, where the judge has decided to send the case to trial.

The investigation started back in 2005 when Sheriff Jimmy Duncan took over and couldn't find hundreds of documents.

Flood was eventually arrested and charged in May after investigators found the records in his possession.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol investigating captain says Flood's trial will most likely be sometime in 2008, unless he pleads out beforehand.

PUSHMATAHA COUNTY, OK -- A former Pushmataha County sheriff is in court Wednesday for a preliminary hearing.

Elvin Flood, 65, is charged with hiding official records. He was arrested back in May of this year but made bond.

The investigation has been going on for some time now. In fact, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol started looking into this back in February of 2005 after the new and current sheriff, Jimmy Duncan, took over and was unable to find hundreds of records.

OHP found those files at a business of former sheriff Elvin Flood after he had told investigators he didn't know where they were.

His arraignment is scheduled for 9 a.m. Thursday.
