He's got just a couple of weeks left to serve as the top cop in Dallas County, but Sheriff Mike Rackley will get to serve out the remainder of his term as he awaits election results on November 4th.
Sheriff Rackley and two deputies were attempting to serve search warrants at a mobile home near Tunas two weeks ago when they say Cory Scharp lunged at them with a knife.
The Missouri Highway patrol conducted the investigation into the the fatal shooting and presented their evidence to Prosecuting Attorney Wayne Rieschel.
Rieschel determined that the officers were justified in protecting themselves, and he says that he will not file any charges against any of the officers involved.
