SHELBY COUNTY, Ala. (WBRC) - A former Shelby County Sheriff’s deputy faces several charges.

He is also charged with two-counts of dissemination of obscene matter containing visual depictions of persons under 17-years-of-age.

Jamieson resigned from the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office over a year ago while in good standing. Sheriff John Samaniego stated, “We are shocked by the news of this investigation.”
