Panel OKs jailer as U.S. marshal

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        BURLINGTON — Boone County Jailer John Schickel, a 25-year law-enforcement veteran, has been has been approved by the Senate Judiciary Committee to be a U.S. marshal for the Eastern District of Kentucky.

        Mr. Schickel's nomination now goes before the full Senate for a confirmation vote. That vote has not been scheduled.

        “As Boone County jailer, John Schickel has a record of distinguished service to the people of Northern Kentucky,” said Republican Sen. Mitch McConnell of Louisville. “My colleagues on the Judiciary Committee did the right thing today (Thursday) in approving John's nomination. I look forward to a quick vote in the U.S. Senate.”

        A Republican active in party politics, Mr. Schickel has served as Boone County jailer for 14 years. Before that he spent more than a decade as a Florence police officer.

        If confirmed, Mr. Schickel will step down as jailer. Boone County Judge-executive Gary Moore, also a Republican, would appoint an interim jailer until the November election.

        U.S. marshals provide security for the federal judiciary, transport prisoners, protect witnesses in federal cases and track fugitives.
