Were promises made by the new Sheriff of Berkeley County?

The rumor-mill has it that newly elected Sheriff Curtis Keller had made a promise of a job in return for a persons support during the election. Carlton Dehaven was a HUGE supporter of Curtis Keller during the election and now it is rumored that Sheriff Keller is giving Carlton Dehaven the Court Marshall position in return for his support. Is offering favors, gifts or gratuities even legal during an election?


The open and available position posted by County Employment Administrator Alan Davis ‘Court Marshal-Berkeley County Judicial Center’ seems a little disingenuous if it is already filled. The announcement could be just be a formality.. or a smokescreen. I guess the people of Berkeley County will have to wait and see who actually gets hired for that position?
