SLED gets Crenshaw letter complaint

August 31, 2012

Sheriff’s candidate Mike Crenshaw

A complaint filed by Mike Crenshaw alleging the Oconee Sheriff’s candidate was the target of five letters that make allegations about both his personal and professional lives is being turned over for  investigation to the state police. Sheriff James Singleton, who terminated Crenshaw from his sheriff’s department job last year, said today he asked for SLED’s involvement to avoid any possible conflicts. Singleton, who is retiring, is supporting Chief Deputy Terry Wilson to become Sheriff in November. Last month Crenshaw filed a complaint with the sheriff’s department and asked for an investigation, alleging the unsigned letters amounted to defamation of his character. Today’s announcement from Singleton states that the Sheriff this week turned over to SLED all case materials and documents related to the political letters.
