As the current Greene County Sheriff, Benison has been in office since 2010. Before that, he was a state trooper for 24 years. His campaign is currently under state investigation for campaign donations that indicate a potentially improper relationship between a political action committee, a Greene County bingo charity and a Greene County casino, according to Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill.
