No charges expected in Hewett death
8/1/14–No charges will be filed against any law enforcement officers in the death of former Brunswick County Sheriff Ron Hewett.
That’s the word from New Hanover DA Ben David.
Hewett was being held at the New Hanover County jail when he died July 12th.
Officials say Hewett fought with deputies and a stun gun was used on him twice–but that he seemed okay after that altercation.
They say heart disease and alcoholism are believed to be the causes of death.
