Camden SC (WLTX) - Camden City Attorney Charles V.B. Cushman has been arrested and accused of misconduct in office.
State Law Enforcement Division agents announced Thursday that Cushman was arrested Wednesday and booked at the Kershaw County Detention Center.
An arrest warrant states that the alleged misconduct took place between January 2005 and December 31, 2011. The document claims that Cushman dismissed or declined to prosecute criminal charges if the defense agreed to donate to the Camden City Drug Fund.
Agents say they have financial records and statements which back up the allegations.
Cushman has been released on a $10,000 personal recognizance bond.
