FIRST ON WITN: ABC Officer Resigns Amid SBI Investigation

A Pitt County ABC law enforcement officer, who has been on paid leave for more than a month, has resigned from his job.

Robert Daugherty resigned last Thursday, that's according to ABC chief James Sasser.

Daugherty has been on leave since August 14th as the SBI conducts an investigation, at the request of the district attorney. No one has released what the focus of the investigation is. Sasser told WITN News that investigation is continuing.

Daugherty had been an ABC officer for almost two years.

    I hope his wife finds out that he is bi-sexual before it's to late....But going as far as to preview child phorn is unacceptable!

    Hmm – I bet my right arm YOU have something to do with the accusations that prompted the investigation. And the insinuations just keep coming! One word, LIES. Are you out for the thrill of ruining a man’s reputation and LIFE or are you shoulder deep in BP’s pockets? Love the part where you say “If he’s innocent then I PRAY it doesn’t hurt him and he can move on with his life!” Touching… And you expect people to believe you mean that considering the accusations in your comment? Don’t forget to include yourself in that prayer. Your judgment’s coming.

    Does a Motel room ring a bell as hear-say progresses. People are starting to talk that know the truth. Be patient my friends, it will all come out in the wash. If he did it then he should be punished to the fullest extent of the Law b/c he should know better. If he's innocent then I pray it doesn't hurt him and he can move on with his life! Its a shame tho, Poor 15 yr old~~~

    "He didnt do his job. The deputy that he covered for should do the same thing." What happened? What did the deputy do? PCSO deputy?
