Former sheriff Ron Hewett to be released early
It looks like former Brunswick County Sheriff Ron Hewett will be released from prison early. Hewett is supposed to get out of federal prison on January 12th, and sent to a halfway house. That is almost two months before the end of his term. Hewett was sentenced to sixteen months in federal prison, for obstructing justice. Sources say Hewett plans to return home to Brunswick County after his release from the halfway house.
