Placeholder Image
Former Kershaw County Sheriff Steve McCaskill is suing Sheriff Jim Matthews for $2 million in a defamation lawsuit filed Thursday at the Kershaw County Courthouse. In the suit, McCaskill claims that Matthews made statements during a Jan. 4 Kershaw County Council meeting and at other times he knew to be false. At the Jan. 4 meeting, Matthews claimed the Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) misused victim advocate funds and mishandled evidence “to the point of negligence.”
