A week after learning his sentence on federal charges, former Brunswick County Sheriff, Ron Hewett, will be back in court. Monday, Hewett will enter a plea in a Brunswick County court on state charges of obstruction of justice and embezzlement. The former sheriff was the subject of a state investigation involving alleged sexual harassment of female officers, showing up drunk at crime scenes, and interfering with investigations involving his own relatives. Earlier this week, Hewett was sentenced to 16 months in prison, two years probation and $10,000 in fines on a federal felony count of obstruction of justice.

    Have to laugh. Or cry. So much thought provoking wisdom I could post here but I will sum it all up with one nonsensical word: Heeeeee-Haaaaaaw!

  • Timmy28459 says:

    Just curious! With everything going on with the former Sheriff Hewett why hasn’t any other news source than the sun news reported about Captain Holden being suspended for doing the same things that he accused the former Sheriff for? Reporting to work drunk, cursing employees, and something about him pulling a gun on an employee? Inquiring minds want to know. The people of Brunswick County deserves to know!

  • Southern Born says:

    I never started a sight, but you keep claiming I did. I did however refer to the sight another blogger started. If you will go back you will find the original blogger who sarted it or u can just keep claiming that I did, I dont care.

    I really dont care how many times you insult me the truth is simple I was a Ronald supporter Ronald pleaded Quilty, Ronalds Going to Jail and you are still thumping your chest..

    Maybe this shows mature behavoir.

    I feel sure that I will recieve another lip bashing, so like always I will wade inn. But I must say that I was fooled by Ronald like many others, but enough is enough.

  • Gene says:

    I am disgusted with a low life that would swear to uphold the constitution and the laws of this nation and state and while putting people in jail would break the laws himself.

    Factually, I admire and believe in our constitutions and the right of “freedom of expression and freedom of speech”. That by the way is what gave you the right to spill out your idiot remarks. Look, if the truth hurts you so much, don’t key up your computer and come in here and read the truth. But, do not even think that your whiny “shut up” means a thing to me or anyone else that wants to express an opinion different than yours. So, while I am thinking, shut up stupid, I will just say, type away more of your rants on what a great guy Ronald was. And WAS happens to be the operative word by the way. Yada, Yada, Yada.

    BTW, born in the south myself. 1948 most likely long before you!

  • Guest08 says:

    Are you not the pee pee whiny boy that started up the failed “save our sheriff Hewett” or what ever it was called web site? It must not have done to well cause I don’t see you telling us all about how much support you got! ROFLAMO

    One last question, was that you playing banjo on the porch in the movie “Deliverance”?

  • Southern Born says:

    Yes it was me playing the banjo, that way i could stay on the front porch did not want to end up like you Squilling like a pig.

  • Soutnern Born says:

    1946, wrong gain son, stomach starting to hurt keep talking so everyone can get what you are all about,

  • gene says:

    Most seen to already understand. Keep trying real hard and I am sure it will come to you too. Or, maybe not. BTW, mind putting up the address to your web page again? I need another good laugh. I think even all the failures on wall street surpasses that.

    BTW, it does not surprise me at all that you would be the one to recall the “squeal like a pig” scene in that movie. Do you watch that a lot?

  • Guest08 says:

    Hey Gene, he may be two years older than you but I bet in all his 62 years only 3 were spent in school! The rest must have been on the porch pickn’ his banjo!

  • Guestwhat? says:

    To be honest. From your writings, I think you probably were born much closer to 1976 than 1946. You just have that juvenile way of speaking. Gene sounds much more mature.

    BTW, you ignored his other question. Were you not the “webmaster” of that failed “support Ronald” website?

  • guesty says:

    That was a good one. :)

  • Gene says:

    Read again, I never claimed you were the person. I asked were you not and when you did not reply to that, I asked again. You now have answered that question. I thought you may have been and I thought wrong. I have no reason to dispute you and I believe that you did not now that you have stated that. Now I know you just referred to that blog of whines.

  • Tanya Hart says:

    I have read the other comments you have made concerning Ronald Hewett and I appreciate ALL you have said…ESPECIALLY for my family who not only lost a loved one (Officer Davina Buff Jones), BUT who were treated like DIRT and LIED to on more than one occasion by Ronald,Rex and company!! It has been almost exactly 9yrs(Oct.22nd) to the day of my sister’s murder and injustice!!! NOW,I WONDER IF HE NOW KNOWS: HOW PRECIOUS SLEEP CAN BE???

  • Guest23 says:

    Thank you for that useless bit of information. This is beginning to be a broken record.

  • Gene says:

    “Monday, Hewett will enter a plea in a Brunswick County court on state charges of obstruction of justice and embezzlement.”

    Now folks, there are 100 counties in NC. And the fact is one or two have former sheriff’s either serving time or have served time. The most recent I can think of was up in Davidson County. Another ego maniac, former SHERIFF GERALD HEGE (a republican for those of you that would claim I am playing partisan politics) and now our Democrat, Ronald Hewwett.

    You know this blog is going to fill up with the blind faithfull’s that will say, “Ron was the greatest sheriff ever”. Well he and his ego partner from the right can share stories while the other 98 do the business of law enforcement!

    Justice has been served. One more dirty cop off the streets. Good for the Cops, good for the citizens, and good for the streets.

    And never forget it will be Hewett himself that faces the court and out of his outh comes the words, “Guitly, your Honor!”

  • kingbase says:

    How is friend Kevin? I bet he has had much rest this week.

  • Southern Born says:

    Judging from your bitter and direct disgust for anyone with a point different from yours I would imagine you are somewhere between despair and neglect for attention!! When it came to Ronald you have and are right, others of us have and will be disappointed in Mr., Hewett but, please take your attitude and Gloating and find another hole to stink up. We are really sick of you being right. it’s sort of like eating apples you may love them at first but eat to many and they leave you with a little stomach ache. So take your literary victories, sobering inclusive digestive and spherical conclusions and shove them up your righteous apple pie hole. We will be weltering with our disappointments. Almost makes us all wish he could be innocent just to shut you up…

  • NASCARFAN says:

    What a huge joke this is; Ronald goes to court on Monday for other charges here in Brunswick County; excuse me if I am wrong but how many times have we people of Brunswick County opened the newspaper (Brunswick Beacon) and seen all the cases for that week in court that the charges are so serious and should serve jail time; such as DWI’s, Possession,etc. and something like what Ronald Hewett is facing and then it says; Case dismissed. Excuse me what a huge WASTE of our tax dollars…..Or they get unsupervised probabtion; oh yeah that really does a lot! GREAT job Rex Gore; you are such a winner!

  • kool2handle says:

    every one keeps forgetting that this was his 2nd term. so he must have been doing something right. every one voted for him. and personaly i liked Ron. he did his best to be a good cop.
    but when you got your kin to think of. well blood is thicker than water. and belive me they all do it. show kin favortizem. look around blind man. all in all ron was a good man. but like every one else he is human. like i said before he who is born with out sin let him cast the first stone. he has never been in trouble with the law before untill now. cut him some slack.I hope they do drop the charges. at least let them run with the time he allready has. the man has no real job skills other then being a cop. now he has to start all over. I think that bad enough.

  • Gene says:

    Ronald is the Joke! But it ain’t funny! But, there are many more jokes in Brunswick County. Cousin Frank and all the other “but he was the best sheriff ever” clan. They are nothing more than jokes and I have to admit, reading their remarks is kind of funny! Stupidly sad but stupidly funny at the same time.

  • GuestfromMD says:

    kool2handle… Ron did a good job, for a while, and then the power got to his head. Excuses like, everyone does it don’t cut it. Also, what is this comment about, “He who is without sin cast the first stone?” by that logic no one on this earth should ever be held accountable for anything they do. By that logic bin Laden could never be brought to trial. Stop using quotes from the Bible to defend Ron Hewett. It sounds like in the end of his term Hewett couldn’t have been living a life any farther from the Bible’s message if he tried.

  • Justin America says:

    All missing from the posts in support of this convicted criminal. So here we go. 1st; Not “everyone” voted for him, very few of the eligible voters voted for him. 2nd; Who are the “they” that “all do it”? do you mean bad people? Next; It was actually Jesus Christ in the Gospel of John chapter 8 who said: “He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone…”. Also; since Adam & Eve, no one has been born “without” sin except Jesus. And lastly, my favorite; “the man has no real job skills other then being a cop”. It seems like he kinda muffed that up too. Now you know.

  • Anne says:

    When you want to forgive him for taking up for “kin”, are you speaking of the in wedlock kin or the out of wedlock kin too? And, would this be all races or just white?

  • LynnC says:

    Lived in Brunswick County all my life, yes…feel sorry for me…I voted for Ronald the first time, but didn’t after that….”Blood” is thicker than water”..? mmmm…didn’t know the law was that way…Hoping “if” my “kin” gets into trouble, they will be ok…..since Ronald’s “kin” is above the law……Not without sin here, so throwing no stones……..rme…

  • kool2handle says:

    You sir just dont understand. prison is going to be like a day camp to Ron. he will just lay around and get fat on our tax dollars. It would be far worse for him to be out. faceing all the folks that look down on him. doing services for his people. washing cop cars, fire trucks, scrubing buildings, painting for the people. not allowed to move from brunswick county for 4 years.and to do services for the people for 4 years. that way he helps the people. mabe he can redeam him self. he has no hope for redimtion in prison. we are so fast to lock people up in this country. I can understand rape murder killer, but all non vilent we should let them stay home to pay their bills so they dont loose there home. let them go to school or work. but also let them work at least 4 hous a day for the people.that will save our tax dollars. and save us money …

  • kool2handle says:

    look your crazy. I can see that. im not saying Ron should not pay for his wrong doing. just not the way the law is going abought it.
    he wanted to put all the cops to work on our dime.
    and for that he is going to daddy day camp.
    when you could keep him home and let him work for us. with out pay.
    look ive been to prison, back in 1980 min. coust. it was like a day camp. all it lacked was a woman.
    if they would have allowed me a woman i would have stayed for ever. hot showers, great cooks, serving great food,all the white or choc. milk you could ever drink. free tobaco. lots of people to talk to. and to play games with.trips to the movies, trips to the pool.ect.and where he is going is way more lax than that.unless you go to a felon camp. prison is a joke. and fed is even more lax. he will get to visit his wife every week to have fun. and if he does go in as a felon. hell probly get houner grade right from the start.wy do you think that their are so many repeat offenders in the usa? wake up.

  • kool2handle says:

    I know that im not the best speller but im not stupid.all these non vilont people you send to prison. all it does is take money out of our pockets.
    i say keep them home and at work. if they cant find a job. find one for them.
    make them give up 4 hours a day for us and six hours for their self.
    that way they dont get on welfare. and we pay less taxes. and they pay for their crimes. its win win for every one.
    ya i say just fine the heck out of them. let them work 4 hours a day for the people to pay the fines off. when they no longer get to go to daddy day camp. the crime rate will lower. especialy drug dealers. they hate working wy you think they sale drugs in the first place?
    no need for misterminer camps or houner grade. just put their butts to work. that will break the cycle.

  • Justin America says:

    It is a broken record, having LEOs incarcerated in 100 counties in NC. It’s like, criminals apply… (and get accepted) so they can protect themselves and know if they and their “friends” are under investigation. I believe you have to fail the personality test to get in B.L.E.T. You don’t here much anymore about the Federal Marshall’s oversight of the NHCSD for having one of the largest unsolved backlog of murder and violent crime cases… in the State. I want my money back.

  • Guest911 says:

    Only two counties presently have Sheriffs either in or on the way to jail. The writer plainly states the other 98 are clean! Not all 100! Duh!

  • Guestedward says:

    “Captain” Kevin?????

  • Justin America says:

    I realized after I posted that the previous post did not state that all 100 counties have Sheriffs in jail. I was wrong. Thank you for pointing that out. I’m not sure that the other 98 are “clean” but it would be interesting to know.

  • Guest for sure says:

    ANOTHER ONE OF THOSE GOOD OLE BOYS PUT OUT OF BRUNSWICK COUNTY SHERIFFS DEPARTMENT.IT IS AMAZING THAT MR. HOLDEN COULD RECORD HIS LIFE LONG FRIEND ON TAPES AND SAY HE WAS COMING TO THE JOB DRUNK AND DRIVING DRUNK,WHEN HE WAS COMMITING THE SAME CRIMES HIMSELF YOU SHOULD HAVE KNOWN YOU WERE GONNA GET CAUGHT SOON.TO KNOW YOU WENT TO WORK SATURDAY NIGHT DRUNK AND PROBABLY EVEN DROVE YOURSELF THERE TO.SHAME SHAME SHAME.I HOPE THEY PUT ALL OF THIS ON THE NEWS STATIONS JUST LIKE THEY DID RONALD,AND YOU THOUGHT THAT WAS FUNNY.IT ISN’T SO FUNNY WHEN THE SHOE IS ON THE OTHER FOOT IS IT.JUST BECAUSE YOU TOOK THE DRUG TEST AT THE SHERIFFS DEPARTMENT,BUT YET DISAPPEARED BEFORE THEY COULD GIVE YOU THE BREATHALIZER THE OTHER DAY YOU THOUGHT YOU HAD FOOLED PEOPLE.

  • KNOW THEM says:

    What about Lt, GENE ALLEN CAISON??

    ENOUGH SAID!!

  • Gene says:

    OK, it seems that you are inferring that I am Gene “Caison” whom I am not. We share the same first name but that is where it ends. Not only do I not work for the Brunswick County Sheriff Department but, I have never been a certified LEO in the County of or in any city in the county of Brunswick.

    I would think that if Gene Caison wanted to blog in here under his name he would use his full name. If he wanted to stay anonymous, he would use an alias.

    With that said and depending on your opinions, anything that I have said should not be credited to or blamed on, Caison.

  • Gene says:

    Sorry, I don’t know a Kevin. Must be another Gene. But, if (Kevin) needs rest and is getting it that is great, I guess?

  • KB says:

    I will be the first to tell you that Kevin has gotten rest because he is out on leave for coming to work a little tipp..sy. How, wonder what Kevin that could be?????

  • Gene says:

    Again, I had no idea who you (two) were speaking of but I am able to ascertain from your blogs that “Kevin” is a LEO that showed up on the job drunk or drinking. If that is so, then he needs the boot also! Zero tolerance for that in law enforcement. I think you are saying boot him? I agree if that is true.

    And once again, as I AM NOT A PART OF LEO IN BRUNSWICK COUNTY, I did not know who “Kevin” was. For you that assume so much it would be better for you to be very clear. Example, Lt. John Doe, Brunswick County. That would help a lot when you are speaking about someone that you know and NO ONE ELSE DOES!

    Thanks

  • Guest87985 says:

    and his favorite corp goes to work tipp..sy too. and helps cover his mistakes when hes tipp..sy

  • KNOW THEM says:

    IF ALL THE LEO’S THAT DRINK IN THE BRUNSWICK COUNTY SHERIFF’S DEPT. GET THE BOOT THEN THERE JUST NAY NOT BE ENOUGH LEFT IN THE DEPT. TO EVEN HAVE A SHERIFF’S DEPT.

  • KNOW THEM says:

    WONDER WHO THAT IS???

    OR MAYBE IT’S A SGT OR LT. UNDER HIS COMMAND

    I HAVE A FEW GUESSES.

  • Gene says:

    I specifically referred to SHOWING UP OM THE JOB drinking or drunk. How much they may decide to drink when not on duty and not behind the wheel of a car is not a concern to me at all. Frankly, it is none of my business.

  • KingBase says:

    I read in the Sun Newspaper,where Kevin Holden was out on leave because he came to work drunk. Hummmm…I guess it’s now time for me to say, Whoppie. It was only a matter of time. I knew that he would have his day soon. Hope he wasn’t going to testify in court Monday. I personally don’t think he would a good character witness. All the back stabbing he did. Boy, how does it feel Kevin?

  • KNOW THEM says:

    Did you not listen to all of the audio tape evidence??? You need to, you will learn that the most damaging info was from his “right hand man”, Mr. lt. Gene Allen Caison. there were FIVE TAPES OF MR. CAISON GETTING HIS GOODS.

    Gene Allen Caison————- 5 tapes.
    Keivn Holden ————— 2 tapes.

    Furthermore, Mr. gene allen caison drinks and is known to be a drinker, right along with the rest of the “GOOD OLE BOYS”.

    Wonder if Holden was given a breathalyzer test, or just maybe he had been drinking the night before and it was the night before alcohol breath, or do you not know anything about that???????????

    MAYBE THE ALCOHOL IS TO CALM THE STRESS OF ALL THAT HAS TRANSPIRED IN THE BRUNSWICK COUNTY SHERIFF’S DEPT.

  • Guest08 says:

    Ha, ha, I wonder if part of the “plea” agreement is, I won’t tell on you Rex Gore! Now that Brunswick has cleansed itself of Hewett it is time to do the same with Gore.
    Are we ready for some more cleansing?

  • kisses says:

    16 month huh if it was me i would have gotten 20 years. Now more charges this is a joke..Why even bother when they will slap him on the hands and say dont do that no more ok.. Yes maybe he did do good for brunswick county but he still did a CRIME… But once again just like some DETECTIVE in LELAND i know that has alittle cover ups and things but yet again nothing will ever be done with him because of his daddy.. We need to stop hiring peopel because of who they know and hire people that have the exp. and the education….. Sorry got carried away..

  • Out of state cop says:

    I don’t live in your community, but my family does. I don’t know the people involved in this story or the incidents that brought it about so I will not comment directly to that.

    All law enforcement officers, no matter what agency, no matter whether they are local, state or federal take an oath of office.

    In that oath, we pledge to protect the Constitution of the United States and in the case of state and local officers, our own states constitution. We also pledge to serve our whole communities honorably and faithfully to the best of our ability.

    To fail to do so brings disrespect no only on yourself, but the fellow officers you serve with, who risk their lives everyday fulfilling that oath, officers who have served before you and have given their blood, sweat, tears and sometime lives in faithfulness to that oath and the officers that will follow you who must overcome your shortcomings and disrespect.

    To fail in this oath while serving to the best of your ability is honorable. To fail in this oath through willfull act or failure to take action is unacceptable. No excuses, not even “kin” can correct that. If you can’t fulfill the oath, don’t take the job.

  • Gene says:

    Thank you. It can not be said better or simpler. In a couple months people will be listening to a person take to oath of President of the United States. With the exception of the job title, it is the exact same oath that ever LEO takes in this state, word for word. That oath is a pledge on the bible to the country and to God. People need to listen to that oath. More importantly those that take that oath should live by it. Ron Hewett broke that oath. End of story.

    The “Thin Blue Line” is storng because of honest cops like you!

  • Guest00000 says:

    I thought she committed suicide isnt that why they did not waste tax payers dollars, did the SBI investgate? and if so what did they say?

  • Elaine says:

    Where have you been? Local, state and federal hearings ruled that she did NOT commit suicide. It was in all the papers. Get informed, please.

  • Gene says:

    Ronald Hewett and Rex Gore would have you believe it was suicide but, the official ruling on her death is not suicide but that she was “Killed” on the job. Even after this ruling Gore states he sees no reason to re-open the case and that his mind has not changed.

    As far as bringing in the SBI or any other agency for that matter, the crime scene was hosed down by the BHI fire department. So much for the preservation of evidence! Her body however was able to be examined and in the end the ruling that stands is, the wounds could not have been self inflicted. There is some other evidence that remained making one question suicide. Like a to do list with plans for later that day. Most people that are going to kill themselves don’t have a to do list for times after the self inflicted death. But, the real stickler goes back to her wounds not being such as she would have been able to do it. That one thing stands alone and screams the fact, someone else pulled the trigger on the weapon and fired a fatal shot into her head.

    While the shoddy police work and the shoddy work by the DA has made it to where we will probably never know who did it, be sure to know the fact is, Officer Jones was murdered while she was on a tour of duty at BHI.

    Give her family at least that little bit of acknowledgement. They had to fight to get that truth out.

  • Guest16** says:

    Brunswick Co along w/ Rex Gore have way too many cases of suicide here! Is calling a homicide a suicide, not saving tax payers money? Ronald and “His Cronnies” have in fact, botched numerous homicide cases in this county and DA Rex Gore takes the simple way out and helps “cover it all up” by calling them suicides. I only pray that these cases are brought to the light since Ronald’s publicity is other than honorable!!!I sure hope in his plea agreement(s), he SANG THE BLUES!

  • Tanya Hart says:

    The BCSD and SBI had already written my sister’s death off as a suicide before any member set foot on Bald Head Island Oct.22 1999. THAT is a fact! NO, the SBI blamed BHI Police Dept, they in turn blamed Brunswick County Sheriff Dept. and they placed blame on the SBI!!! All involved had to keep everyone HAPPY on BHI! After all, there are sooo many involved with my sister’s injustice that have ties(IN MORE WAYS THAN ONE)with Bald Head Island!!! READ the book “OUT WITH THREE:The Murder and Betrayal of Bald Head Island Police Officer Davina Buff Jones” and it will help explain why Ronald Hewett and so many other people with authority in this STATE should be FACING JAIL TIME!!!*************************

  • Guest44 says:

    Guest 00000… Read “Out With Three “

  • sadlerbev says:

    Guest00000 – As you hide behind your anonymity, and your apparent ignorance, you can make your sarcastic comment but our family has endured alot more than your whimpy remark. The Buff family did not waste tax dollars – the STATE OF NC (The Attorney General’s Office, to be specific) wasted the tax dollars, fighting us – and they lost. Losers just like you. BIG FAT “ZEROES”!!! Let me help you make the conncection, since you seem to need to be educated on THE TRUTH: The NC Attorney General is the highest prosecuting body of the State, which is under the Govenor. Our Local (Brunswick County) DA’s office is also an extension of that body. Now connect the dots. Any of them have ties to Bald Head? Believe she committed suicide all you want and continue to be the loser that you are. The truth is she was murdered. WE LIVE WITH THAT INJUSTICE EVERY DAY!
    May God Bless all the good-hearted men and women in uniform who serve and give their lives daily for us. Davina was one of them.
    Personally, I don’t think she is quite at peace yet – she is still doing her job. What comes around goes around. Maybe ole Rex is next. . . or better yet, the other guy.

  • Guest from southport says:

    If Rex Gore even attemps to dismiss these charges I will personally call the NC DA and file a law suit. This is bull, Hewett, like Gore is nothing more then a criminal…as are the men who turned in Hewett. This new sheriff needs to step up to the plate and get rid of the good old boys at the County Complex
