ABBEVILLE, S.C. (AP) - The Abbeville County Sheriff has admitted he made a sex tape more than a decade ago.
The Index-Journal of Greenwood reports copies of the video have been recently passed out in Abbeville County.
The video shows Charles Goodwin and a woman take off their clothes on camera. They then end up on the floor and are mostly off camera for the next 16 minutes before being seen getting dressed.
Goodwin wouldn't discuss specifics about the video with the newspaper, but said it was made in 2001. He says his family has forgiven him, and he hopes citizens in the county can accept his apology too.
Goodwin was first elected sheriff in 1988. He won the Democratic primary with 58 percent of the vote and faces a Republican challenger.
