Richard A. Lanham Sr., the former head of the state corrections system who quietly took the reins of the Harford County jail in 2004, is stepping down, citing personal reasons. Lanham's departure comes at a critical moment for the county sheriff's office because a number of high-ranking deputies who oversee jail and courthouse operations have stepped down in recent months. Sheriff R. Thomas Golding, who is not seeking to keep his position in the fall election, said he will hold the positions open and allow the new sheriff to select replacements.
