Sources tell us Friday night that former Brunswick County Sheriff Ron Hewett is no longer behind bars. Hewett was scheduled to be released from Butner Federal Corrections Complex in January. But Friday, sources said his "good" behavior got him out early. He is now in a community corrections facility in Raleigh, to help transition him back into society. Hewett pleaded guilty to federal obstruction of justice back in November. He was the sheriff of Brunswick County for fourteen years. We are told Hewett intends to eventually return home to Brunswick County.
