Kershaw County’s insurance carrier will pay out $110,000 to settle three of five lawsuits filed against Kershaw County Sheriff Jim Matthews. The settlements come as part of a mediation effort earlier this month. In response to a S.C. Freedom of Information Act request, the Chronicle-Independent obtained a copy of a memorandum sent to Kershaw County Council members and Kershaw County Administrator Vic Carpenter by County Attorney Ken DuBose.
