A Webster County Constable sentenced for sexual abuse has resigned.

Webster County officials say Dennis Shelton sent his resignation letter last Friday.

He entered an Alford plea, not acknowledging guilt or innocence, on four counts of sexual abuse in Webster County.

The resignation was one of the conditions of his plea deal.

His charges stemmed from incidents dating back to fall 2015.

Shelton was sentenced to 360 days in jail.

He must serve 120 days and be on probation for the remainder of the sentence.
