NHSO demotes, suspends two lieutenants

Thursday, June 26th, 2014

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — New Hanover County Sheriff Ed McMahon has suspended two of his lieutenants and demoted them after internal affairs investigations.

Sean Jones and Larry Robinson have both been demoted to deputy and suspended for 40 hours, according to NHSO spokesman Sgt. Jerry Brewer.

Brewer says an internal affairs investigation of a single incident found Robinson, who worked in detention, guilty of conduct unbecoming.

Brewer says IA found Jones, who was assistant division commander for Community Support Services, had violated policies for conduct unbecoming and truthfulness. That result came based on new evidence recently uncovered after an investigation started in April turned up nothing, Brewer said.

The Sheriff’s Office will not say what either man did, because it’s a personnel matter.

Robinson has been with the Sheriff’s Office since May 1994. Jones started in July 1992.

Both men’s salary will also be reduced along with their rank. Jones’s hourly pay will go from $32.98 to $28.71, while Robinson will see a drop from $29.39 an hour to $26.66.
