Republican Representative Sam Krone of Cody has been charged with three felony counts of larceny, three misdemeanor counts of larceny and one misdemeanor count of theft.

The criminal charges, which were filed by the Wyoming Attorney General's Office on Friday, follow an investigation by special agents of the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation.

Because the case is pending, the Attorney General's Office and the Division of Criminal Investigation will not comment on the charges.

The former Park County attorney was fired in February after sending a series of profane and belittling texts to a woman being prosecuted by his office.
