Professional Standards Lieutenant C. Wilson, a 16-year decorated veteran of the New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office will become the Assistant Division Commander for Vice and Narcotics.

Det. Sgt. T. Greger has been promoted to Lieutenant in Vice and Narcotics. Detective M. Sorg will leave the NHSO ATF Task Force and is promoted to sergeant in Vice and Narcotics. Lt. J. Hart is transferred from the Vice and Narcotics to Professional Standards.

The District Attorney’s Office has dismissed eight pending drug cases because of LeBlanc’s involvement in them.
