PINCKNEYVILLE, Ill. (AP) A southern Illinois sheriff is on leave after being accused of public indecency in a nearby county.   The Perry County Sheriff’s Department says chief deputy Mike Plumlee is filling in for 48-year-old Sheriff Keith Kellerman.

Caseyville police say Kellerman and another man were arrested early Friday after an officer allegedly saw them engaging in a sex act in a car in the St. Clair County community.

The two men were issued ordinance violations and are to appear Jan. 12 in St. Clair County Circuit Court in Belleville. A message was left Wednesday with Kellerman’s attorney, Thomas Mansfield of Murphysboro.

The Democrat was first elected sheriff of Perry County in 1998. He was re-elected in 2010.

    They told this Sheriff to pack his s**t and get out but they were too late.
    He was just being a good democrat, Obama’s doing it to the whole country and we don’t even get any reach around.
