Former Klamath County Sheriff Frank Skrah has been found guilty of five out of seven misdemeanor counts after the jury delivered a verdict Friday afternoon.

Deliberations took roughly three hours before the court was informed of a decision, which the jury reached unanimously.

Skrah was found guilty of a count of harassment for holding a flashlight to the throat of James Johnson Feb. 16, 2013; harassment, attempted fourth-degree assault and first-degree official misconduct for striking Jason Charles Jan. 4, 2014; and harassment for choking Kenneth Bragg Feb. 27, 2015.

The jury acquitted Skrah of strangulation and first-degree official misconduct related to the Bragg incident.
