It’s interesting that these stories of scandal and corruption only show up on topix? There’s nothing in the Lenoir paper or Hickory paper; no charges have been filed. That pretty much sums it up. All this garbage is coming from a few enemies of Allen Jones. Most likely disgruntled ex-employees who think that Lance Wilson will hire them back if he is elected.
I believe Lance Wilson went on the record as saying he would not remove any current officers or re-hire any ex-employees. So I guess you folks are only after revenge for something you think Jones did to you.

The story of the scandal was actually mentioned by the local paper, but Jones refused to comment. The other allegations have been mentioned in either the paper or in legal filings at the courthouse. It is far more than ex-employees, there are citizens, voters, business owners, parents and others that are talking about it. There is a former officer involved in the scandal that has produced a audio recording of his meeting with the Sheriff that is quite interesting. Don't worry, Sheriff Jones will have plenty of opportunity to explain his actions or lack of action to these and other actions during his final term. I consider it only fair to allow the Sheriff the opportunity to explain himself to the voters of this county.

Please post links to the stories you mention. No offense but I don’t believe anything posted on topix without evidence.
If you know so much about this and have all this evidence why have you not taken it to the county district attorney and had charges drawn up on Sherriff Jones.

I will have to look it up myself but I remember reading it in the paper as well, I am sure LNT has some way of getting a link just may have to search for it. Why dont you call them if you are so sure its not true? It was about the embezzlement for one and then the other is about the swingers club and the 6 officers allowed to resign at one time basically. That is just a small amount of stuff but since you are so positive Jones is a saint there are no point in wasting the time to tell you. If you think that many people are "disgruntled employees" then I cant help you nor would any amount of proof ever change your mind. Lance has promised to release the info when the time comes and all the ducks are in order so we shall see. Its funny there are that many "disgruntled employees" yet very few are fired and most just resign.... hmmm.
Here is a local news agency about the swingers club that I found in just a second

So Jones allowed 6 officers to resign instead of firing them for their conduct in an internal matter. What’s the problem?
I see six ex-employees with a grudge against Jones who think Lance Wilson will re-hire them if elected.
I want to see where Jones was convicted of a crime, involved in a cover up or a scandal.
Innocent till proven guilty.
Your rumors and hearsay evidence are useless.

its easy to see you are just one of his sock puppets lol. Actually he has had over one hundred plus employees turnover since he has been sheriff so take your pick there idiot. I spouse everyone is wrong and a disgruntled employee except the lackeys that work for him.
Its pretty obvious to see you actually know the truth but are trying to play the innocent till proven guilty crap every criminal does. Well unfortunately for you and jones that doesn't apply in court of public opinion and thankfully Wilson has the evidence to back it up and will be out soon enough. Can't wait to see your reaction then. Denial is a bad thing.
Most anyone with half a brain knows why allowing them to resign is wrong and they are not the ones talking as he is protecting them. We will see in may what the public believes. They are not as stupid as you and jones want to think they are.

I guess this the big scandal?
CALDWELL COUNTY, N.C.-- An internal investigation by the Caldwell County Sheriff's Office led to the termination of six employees. On Tuesday Caldwell County Sheriff Alan Jones announced that four Sheriff's Office personnel and two employees with communications resigned following the investigation. Sheriff Jones says the investigation is a confidential personnel matter, and would not elaborate on the circumstances that prompted the inquiry into the employees.
LENOIR —A Caldwell County sheriff's deputy resigned Tuesday after allegations of misconduct were investigated. Sgt. John “Jack” Day Jr. served in the department’s Detention Division and worked with people who were under house arrest. The investigation was terminated once he resigned, Capt. B.J. Fore of the Caldwell County Sheriff's Office said. Day could not be reached Monday for comment. He had been employed full-time as a deputy since June 15, 2005. Fore would not confirm the nature of the misconduct allegation.
The sheriff’s office said in a press release that there would be no comment on a personnel matter.
Day is at least the seventh sheriff’s office employee to leave the sheriff's office in the face of misconduct allegations. In November, four deputies and two communications employees resigned as a result of an internal investigation.
So there was an internal investigation people were fired or resigned Jones kept the information private to protect those that resigned. If there was an issue with the people fired why are they not telling why they were investigated? Sounds like Jones did what needed doing and cleaned house.
Sherriff Allen Jones called in the SBI to investigate,
The district attorney did not prosecute John “Jack” Day because of insufficient evidence.

And the Monty Poarch story...
There's no wonder all the sex scandal allegations are going on at CCSO when you hire then promote people who've already admitted and lost a job for it.

So Monty Poarch had sex while wearing a state trooper uniform?
Is that it?
That somehow disqualified him as a sheriff’s deputy.
Bill Clinton had sex in the Oval Office while pretending to be president. He never got fired and he maybe the next first lady.

Your such an idiot accusing this person of being pill drunken period, as they are proactive in the fight against prescription pill abuse, who has challenged the medical board on two different occasions about two different well known doctors one being a bone surgeon from Frye Regional Medical center and another very well known doctor in Morganton which handed out pills like candy, the testimony given resulted in them being removed from practicing in the medical field. This person also took the time to file a proper complaint for Color of Law Violations with the FBI under Title 18 Sec 241/242 the Police Misconduct Statute, so before you wife swapping rejects put your two since worth in take a bath in holey water beat yourself with the holey bible and come back with some facts....

This is the website that explains how to file a proper complaint. Make sure you send all information requested and do so by certified mail only.
