Wedding was the only candidate to file for the position. He will fill out the remainder of Williams' term, which ends December 31st.
Sheriff Williams last day is May 23rd.
Wedding will be sworn in as sheriff that day.
Wedding is also a candidate for sheriff this fall. He's facing opposition from Kirk Byram in the November election.
