Aiken Sheriff's SEX Scandal Coverup
Posted in the Bamberg Forum
#1 Nov 16, 2007
Failure to follow protocol cost an Aiken County deputy his job.
In August, an informant claimed Cpl. John Herring paid $10 for sex acts and gave a woman cigarettes in exchange for touching her.
The sheriff's office says they found nothing to prove those allegations, but Herring did admit he gave her money and cigarettes in exchange for information.
Lt. Michael Frank say's that is why the deputy was fired--because he did not document the exchange of money ahead of time, which is against the sheriff's office's policy.
"Before we establish a relationship with an informant, a lot of things have to take place," Lt. Frank said. "If the plan calls for money in exchange for information, that has to be documented ahead of time."
The deputy's termination form says the use of any confidential informant and payment to informants must be properly documented by the agency's narcotics supervisor.
