BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — Brunswick County’s Chief Deputy is responding to criticism from two judges.
In a motion to the NC Supreme Court filed this week, Judges Jerry Jolly and Ola Lewis say Chief Deputy Charlie Miller was not truthful when he said Lewis called him away from an investigation to deliver a court order to the District Attorney.
In a statement you’ll see ONLY ON 3, Miller said, “It has been an honor and privilege to serve the citizens of Brunswick County since 1987 as a deputy sheriff. I have served in just about every position there is, and I am currently the Chief Deputy. I have the utmost respect for the the judicial system, and during the 24 years of service, never has my integrity or service been questioned. I am not going to respond to an individual’s false allegations, but I will make my presence and testimony available to any court that may require same. I will not be making any further statements concerning this matter while it is still pending in the court system. I appreciate the confidence and support from the people that I serve, the citizens of Brunswick County.”
The comments against Miller were made in a motion Jolly submitted to dismiss a case between him and DA Jon David regarding a traffic court program in Brunswick County. The two men recently reached an agreement to bring the program back.
