Larry “L.W.” Flynn II, who ran for Kershaw County Sheriff as a Republican in 2010, is now serving a 15-month sentence in a federal prison in connection with an illegal video gambling operation. A U.S. judge sentenced Flynn this week in federal court to 15 months in prison plus three years of supervised release and to pay $251,000 in restitution to the federal government. Flynn pleaded guilty in August 2015 to charges of operation of an illegal gambling business, tax evasion and failure to pay taxes.
