Ron Hewett to enter plea Monday


A week after learning his sentence on federal charges, former Brunswick County Sheriff, Ron Hewett, will be back in court. Monday, Hewett will enter a plea in a Brunswick County court on state charges of obstruction of justice and embezzlement. The former sheriff was the subject of a state investigation involving alleged sexual harassment of female officers, showing up drunk at crime scenes, and interfering with investigations involving his own relatives. Earlier this week, Hewett was sentenced to 16 months in prison, two years probation and $10,000 in fines on a federal felony count of obstruction of justice.
