Former Union County Sheriff Wells pleads guilty

Former Union County Sheriff Howard Wells pleaded guilty in federal court this afternoon, admitting that he lied to an FBI agent.

Three other Union County men, including former tax assessor Willie E. Randall Jr., also entered guilty pleas in Spartanburg.

Wells, who was sheriff of Union County for 16 years until losing the Democratic Primary in 2008, rose to fame in 1994 during the investigation of Susan Smith.

Wells, Randall, former Union County Supervisor Donnie Betenbaugh, Lapriest Darnell Beacham and Willard Dee Farr were charged with different offenses in indictments published last October.

Wells had been accused of lying to a federal investigator, witness tampering and altering evidence.

Federal prosecutors said Wells failed to report the taxable interest income he made on personal loans to an individual then attempted to conceal it. Prosecutors dropped the tampering and evidence charges as part of the plea agreement with Wells, who faces a maximum five-year prison sentence and/or $250,000 fine, three years supervised release and a $100 special assessment.

Randall pleaded guilty to a total of seven offenses, and is planning to testify in Betenbaugh's trial.

Wells, Randall, Farr and Beacham will be sentenced at a later date.

If it wasn't such a hell hole in your city, the people with money could come downtown and spend spend it with your shop owners.

Your attitude is ridiculous, the right to be heard around here, doesn't include the right to be taken seriously. You don't care about the safety of your family?

I don't live in Richmond Virginia and I care very much about the safety of my Family, that's why I guard my dwelling with a sawed off shotgun and not some lame ass handgun.

So you are breaking the law with an illegal gun huh? Don't worry, someone may steal it while you aren't home.

So long as you don't cross the border.

Just what is the ratio of law enforcement officers to population in El Paso?
