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.

read again yourself

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.

Hey GENE..IE

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

Don't know Kevin

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?

OK, if you don't know...

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?????

and his favorite corp goes

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

AND HIS FAVORITE CORP. GOES

WONDER WHO THAT IS??? OR MAYBE IT'S A SGT OR LT. UNDER HIS COMMAND I HAVE A FEW GUESSES.

drunk is drunk!

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

DRUNK IS DRUNK

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.

drinking on the job

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.

Thank You

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

"Captain" Kevin?????

"Captain" Kevin?????

Capt. Holden

What about Lt, GENE ALLEN CAISON?? ENOUGH SAID!!

Not Caison

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.

HTTP://ANOTHER GOOD OLE BOY GONE

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.

Ludicrous

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.

read again dufus!

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!

You're right..

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.

WELL SAID GENE!!!

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???

suicide

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?

TOO MANY SUICIDES

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!

Suicide - Where have you been?

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 00000... Read "Out

Guest 00000... Read "Out With Three "

Absolutely Not A Suicide!

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!!!*************************

Not ruled suicide! It was murder!

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.

suicide - no!

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.
