Former Sheriff Charged With Misconduct

Franklin Co., VA - Former Franklin County Sheriff Ewell Hunt has been charged with misconduct by an elected official.

The charge stems from the day Jennifer Agee was shot and killed in Franklin County allegedly at the hands of one of Hunt's deputies.

This happened back in May of last year after Hunt allegedly failed to notify the proper authorities that Jonathan Agee threatened to kill his ex-wife.

Special Prosecutor Mike Doucette then investigated Hunt's actions on that day looking into whether he did enough to prevent her death.

Hunt was served a summons Tuesday. A hearing for this charge is set for July 11.
