Vic Williams wins race for Itasca County Sheriff

ITASCA COUNTY, MN — The final votes are in for a race we’ve been watching closely over the past few weeks.

Incumbent Vic Williams has maintained his seat in the Itasca County Sheriff race.

Williams defeated Bryan Johnson by a little more than 200 votes.

Johnson has been accused of using his county cell phone to allegedly send and receive thousands of sexually-charged text messages to multiple people, including a female county employee.
