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.

    Just curious! With everything going on with the former Sheriff Hewett why hasn’t any other news source than the sun news reported about Captain Holden being suspended for doing the same things that he accused the former Sheriff for? Reporting to work drunk, cursing employees, and something about him pulling a gun on an employee? Inquiring minds want to know. The people of Brunswick County deserves to know!

    Have to laugh. Or cry. So much thought provoking wisdom I could post here but I will sum it all up with one nonsensical word: Heeeeee-Haaaaaaw!
