Former deputy pleads not guilty in misconduct case
A former Darlington County sheriff’s deputy has pleaded not guilty to charges accusing him of misconduct in office.
Edward Wirhousky was arraigned last week on one charge of having sex while on duty and another charge of illegally letting someone use a computer owned by the Sheriff’s Office.
He was granted a $10,000 personal-recognizance bond.
The date of the alleged offenses was not clear.
The Sheriff’s Office says Wirhousky has not worked there since 2017.
Wirhousky’s attorney told WPDE-TV that the former deputy has worked in law enforcement for more than 30 years and is “completely innocent of these charges.”
