NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — The Cleveland County Sheriff's Office is honoring a late sheriff with a bronzed bust.

The bust of Sheriff F. DeWayne Beggs will be unveiled Sunday at the Cleveland County Detention Center in Norman. Beggs served as a deputy from 1988 to 1992 and sheriff from 1993 to 2008. He died in 2009 from an illness.

Current Sheriff Joe Lester says people who admired Beggs wanted to recognize him and his work.

Beggs' wife, Sue, said her husband would be honored to know about the bust.
