County prosecutor who had received death threats signs gun out of evidence where it's stolen from his car

A county prosecutor who had received death threats signed a gun out of the sheriff's evidence room only to have it stolen a month later.

Though the events happened in 2013, the gun never was recovered. And Walt Wilkins, 13th Judicial Circuit solicitor for Greenville and Pickens counties in South Carolina, is facing repercussions in his bid for re-election Tuesday.

“I was very concerned about my ability to successfully prosecute that case," said Lisa Parrish, a former assistant solicitor assigned the case while working for Wilkins. “The gun in question, again if I recall, was an essential piece of the probable cause for the officers to get inside the car and search it."

Signing out evidence in a pending case can be problematic because it affects the chain of custody in a case, according to Wilkins' political adversaries.

Wilkins, who didn't want to buy a gun because of the expense and what he considered a temporary need for it, said he consulted with Greenville County's sheriff at the time, Steve Loftis. The prosecutor declined an offer to assign a deputy to him for protection.

After he shared specifics about the threats, Loftis told Wilkins – who has an annual income of $141,354, according to the State Ethics Commission – that he could borrow a gun from the evidence room, Wilkins said. A month after Wilkins took possession of the Sig Sauer P938 pistol, he reported the gun stolen from his unlocked SUV parked outside his Greenville home.

Walt Wilkins was appointed by Bush and his brother controls the radio stations in the adjacent county of Spartanburg, SC.
They are both deep state and on the Soros payroll.
Make sense now before the election?
Lindsay Graham is also a Soros recipient.
Corruption runs deep in South Carolina.

Quote:Former prosecutor Bob Ariail, Wilkins' predecessor, said signing out evidence in a pending case to a solicitor was never done in his 15-year tenure.

"That would not have been an approved procedure in my office nor would have I ever done that," he said. "I’ve never known that to happen. It would be real strange.

While he was at it sign out some heroin and coke and make some money on the side, just take pictures of it and don't leave it in the SUV.

Yuppers, screwed up AF.
If all you need is S/N's and pics to prove a crime in court of law, why not just take all the evidence and hock it to line your pockets. wtf2.gif

Pull something like that in the private sector and you can count on unemployment.
