WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — We are learning more about the demotion this week of two New Hanover County sheriff deputies for conduct unbecoming.

Sheriff Ed McMahon could not say what Sean Jones and Larry Robinson did, because it is a personnel matter, but he says conduct unbecoming could be any number of violations that reflects poorly on the department.

“It could be. You name it,” McMahon said. “Something that you would think when you heard it, you know what, a law enforcement officer is not supposed to do that, especially a staff officer. And that could be from on-the-job things to personal life things.”

Both men have been with the sheriff’s office since the early ’90s.

On top of losing rank, Robinson and Jones had their hourly pay docked as well.
