PUTNAM COUNTY, N.Y. -- Putnam County Sherrif Don Smith spent three years pleading with state and federal authorities to arrest or remove former District Attorney Adam Levy from office, according to a lohud.com report.

Levy is the son of TV's Judge Judy and recently settled a lawsuit with Smith after Smith said Levy publicly interfered in his investigation of Levy's personal trainer Alexander Hossu for raping a 13-year-old girl. Hossu was acquitted on the charges.

In letters sent to the FBI, US Attorney's Office the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Smith asked them to charge Levy with illegally housing an undocumented immigrant or to take over his criminal cases, according to lohud.

Smith denied writing letters to law enforcement during court depositions, according to lohud .

As part of his settlement with Levy, Smith had to retract and apologize for saying Hossu lived with Levy and that Levy should be investigated for harboring an illegal alien.
