Suspended Camden City Attorney Charles Cushman pleaded guilty Thursday afternoon to contempt of court by an attorney and paid a $130 fine. In exchange for the plea, the 5th Circuit Solicitor’s Office dismissed misconduct in office charges against Cushman connected to allegations that he dismissed Camden Municipal Court charges against certain defendants in exchange for “donations” to the Camden City Drug Fund. Thursday’s hearing took place in the Kershaw County Courthouse.
