An Eastern Carolina police chief, who is also running for sheriff, will not face any charges as a result of a state investigation.
In March WITN first reported that Stantonsburg Police Chief John Hunt was the subject of an SBI probe. The SBI says it finished their investigation several weeks ago and turned the results over to the district attorney.
District Attorney Robert Evans said no charges will be brought against Hunt. "The matter was investigated by the SBI," said the district attorney. "They turned over a report of their findings to us and our office declined to press charges."
The nature of the investigation was never made public and Hunt has remained on the job. He is on next month's Democratic primary ballot for Greene County sheriff, running against incumbent Lemmie Smith.
