OTTAWA, Kan. (AP) _ A former eastern Kansas sheriff is accused in a civil ouster petition of tipping off his alleged lover about a meth investigation.

After several media outlets petitioned the court, the petition was unsealed Monday. Several hours later, Jeff Curry's resignation as Franklin County sheriff took effect.

The Ottawa Herald reports that Curry says the allegations are untrue. The Franklin County sheriff's office referred calls to the county attorney's office, which wasn't open. The ex-sheriff doesn't have a listed phone number.

The unsealed documents say Curry admitted in September to informing the woman that she had been identified by a confidential informant. He reportedly told her she was going to be a subject in a federal drug investigation.

Prosecutors have agreed to dismiss criminal charges against Curry if he completes a diversion agreement.
