Reacting to Crystel Myers' ongoing legal limbo, budget-writers shift her salary to pay deputies

Crystel Myers, who was elected in 2012, makes $9,570 per year; starting in 2015, $2,000 of that salary will shift to the fund that pays her deputies, who have been conducting all of the county’s death investigations since Myers was arrested in December.
