Petition: Sheriff Daugherty should be suspended

Lincoln County Attorney Jeff Taylor has asked a judge to remove embattled Sheriff Tim Daugherty from office, the Observer's Joe Depriest reports.

Taylor filed a petition in Lincoln County Superior Court on Monday, asking the court to order a hearing on the matter as soon as possible.

Lincoln County commissioners voted unanimously in October to authorize Taylor to begin legal proceedings against Daugherty, who has been indicted on two counts of felony obstruction of justice. He is accused of covering up a fixed drunken-driving investigation.

Daugherty has pleaded not guilty to the charges and said through his attorney that he would not step down. Commissioners have asked him twice to resign. He could not be reached for comment on Tuesday.

On another note where is the article on pretty blue eyed blonde 26 year Greenville SC native Ann Pressley KATV anchor who was broken into brutally raped beaten and murdered after a 5 day coma in Little Rock Ark who has relatives here in Charlotte?

The 28 yr old black rapist murderer named Cutis Lavelle Vance committed his evil on her on Oct 20th 2008 and was just found guilty by a jury in Little Rock.
The slimewad pleaded innocent though detectives had semen and pubic hairs and much evidence to convict him. We can only hope he gets death and burns in hell eternally and thats too good.
