After verified allegations of moral turpitude Sheriff's deputy Keith Ward remains in uniform. A slug of the Columbus County community that has been rumored to have disgraced his uniform by having relationships with more than one married woman; Ward has also been rumored to have attempted witness intimidation.
Yet thanks to former DA Rex Gore and Sheriff Chris Batten ward may try to go out on disability.

Oct 17, 2010 It is a crying shame that this red neck loud mouth is unopposed. The lies he has told i.e. when the young man hung himself and Batten didn't report prior attempts of suicide to Robeson jailors; Batten claimed that hippa guidelines and the NC Sheriff's Association told him not to report such. Later his own association would refute such openly and in the press. Likewise Batten and his red neck big self stormed Columbus County Social Services, much like the Nazi stormtroopers of old; he commandeered the County building and sent everyone home. Later he would claim that the SBI told him evidence was being destroyed and he needed to take action. The SBI would later refute Batten's statements, all but calling him a liar. In both of the above incidences the County was sued and paid large sums of money. Oh let's not forget about the racial statement, "Preachers need to learn that were going to get them for selling drugs." This idiot made this statement in the press after an African American preacher was arrested for drugs.
The news reporter covers for this thug sheriff that reminds one of Elroy P Lobo. Recently a potential honest candidate with a level head that would not lie or cause the County to be repeatedly sued was silenced from running.

Is this Ward related to Christopher Ward?

He is a real slug among that department and should have been removed 2 sheriffs ago. They keep demoting Ward in hopes he will go away. If it is true that Batten covered up for Ward's stealing then Batten should go also. Batten's covering up for Danny Duncan's crimes have caught up with him. The county should be liable for the homes Ward has broken up while in uniform and on the clock. ward, I hear, is trying to retire on disibility, a badge of honor and way of life among Columbus County citizens.

This is a very rude man. Keth Ward I would call him a jerk and a laughing stock of law enforcement. He thinks he is 10 feet tall and bullet proof looking down on decent folks. What goes around comes around. Another one the state will have to support.
