The State Attorney General’s Office says it is still reviewing the case of fired New Hanover County Deputy Joseph LeBlanc.
LeBlanc was a lieutenant in the Vice and Narcotics Unit.
Since his firing, the New Hanover County DA’s office has dismissed eight drug cases investigated by LeBlanc.
Now—the state will determine if LeBlanc will face criminal charges.
A spokesperson said Tuesday that the probe by the AG’s office is ongoing.
