Sean Mewherter, 21, pleaded guilty Feb. 13 in Brunswick County Superior Court to felony larceny by an employee. In lieu of five to 15 months in jail, Mewherter received 24 months of probation and a $316 fine.

There’s a gaping whole in this story. It’s sad to see an incomplete article that leaves readers uninformed. Was the money recovered or not? Was the wife charged as well? Finish your job amd let us know…..
