Crenshaw calls for counterpart to resign

Oconee Sheriff Mike Crneshaw says his counterpart at Greenville, Sheriff Will Lewis, should step down.  Crenshaw is a member of the board of the South Carolina Sheriffs Association which yesterday terminated Lewis’s membership.  According to reports, Lewis has publicly admitted to a consensual encounter with a former employee.  Crenshaw says, in 2015, he supported a by-law change that gives the state association the authority to hold its members accountable.  Said Crenshaw:  “I use the same standard for my fellow Sheriff’s that I use for my deputies.  I would have terminated a member of my staff in the same circumstances as Sheriff Lewis.  I do believe he should resign.”
