Saginaw County undersheriff gets terminated

Posted: Updated:
SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -

Saginaw County Sheriff Bill Federspiel announced Friday that Undersheriff Bob Karl was being terminated.

"It's not a knock on my current undersheriff," Federspiel said. "There's nothing wrong with Bob, we just decided to move in a different direction."

Karl, 55, worked as the undersheriff at Saginaw County for six years.

Karl said he's devastated about the news and is confused about the new direction the department is heading in. 

Federspiel, who made the decision to let Karl go, said the employment decision was a tough one. 

"From an emotional standpoint it's very difficult," he said.

Friday was Karl's last day. Federspiel said Karl approached everyday with courage and strength. 

"He's a class act from day one," Federspiel said.

Federspiel said Karl did an excellent job running the department's operations and was an exemplary employee.
