Orangeburg County is suing the estate of its former sheriff, saying it wants the money he allegedly stole from the county before he died.

The county is also suing Larry Williams’ fiancée, Ivadella Walters, who it claims helped him take the money. It’s also suing South Carolina Federal Credit Union, where Walters was formerly employed.

Walters’ attorney, Carl B. Grant, said, “We would intend to deny all allegations of misconduct against Ms. Walters and vigorously defend her against them as well.”

While he was only recently hired to represent Walters in her personal capacity in the lawsuit, Grant said he expects to file a formal answer within the next few days.

Williams was serving his third term as sheriff when he died on Sept. 21, 2010, at Palmetto Health Richland at the age of 53. The cause of death was acute respiratory failure and septic shock, with other factors including chronic kidney disease and obesity, according to his death certificate.

Thousands turned out for his funeral, including more than 200 law enforcement officers and 25 sheriffs from around the state.

The new sheriff, Leroy Ravenell, sought an audit of the sheriff’s office. A county audit revealed the existence of 11 bank accounts containing a total of $222,382 that were not included in the county’s audited financial statements in previous years.

That led to a State Law Enforcement Division investigation into financial irregularities under Williams.

SLED spokesman Kathryn Richardson said Wednesday, “The investigation is continuing and it would not be appropriate to comment further.”

The U.S. Attorney’s Office would neither confirm nor deny it is investigating the allegations, as is customary for the office.

In its lawsuit, the county claims Williams opened several bank accounts at S.C. Federal Credit Union without the consent of Orangeburg County officials, even though he used the county’s tax ID number.

He used the accounts for money Orangeburg County was reimbursed for participating in law enforcement task forces with state and federal agencies, the county said.

Walters worked full-time at the credit union, but she also worked full-time at the Sheriff’s Office, the county claims. It alleges she helped create and service the accounts.

Williams “secretly deposited” money in the accounts, and used them for personal purchases, the lawsuit says. It also alleges Walters used the money for personal gain.

The two allegedly stole $62,019 from the accounts in 2009 to help pay off a loan they took out on a used, 1998 Discovery 36T recreational vehicle, according to the lawsuit.

Afterward, they changed the vehicle’s title to reflect Orangeburg County owned the RV. But Orangeburg County says it didn’t know about the vehicle and didn’t accept the title.

After Williams died, “an anonymous person or persons placed the RV on county property; however, the county did not authorize the purchase or placement of the RV and has no public use for the RV,” according to a separate filing the county made in probate court.

Orangeburg County isn’t sure how much it might have lost overall.

On July 20, 2011, Orangeburg County attorney D’Anne Haydel informed the probate court that forensic accounting had revealed Williams used approximately $28,298 for his personal benefit or without known connection to any public purpose. But she said more research was needed.

The county claims the credit union did not take steps to protect the public’s money when it learned of Walters’ relationship with Williams.

South Carolina Federal Credit Union Vice President for Corporate Communications Jessica Jackson did not return calls Wednesday afternoon.

Orangeburg County has also asked for Walters to be removed as personal representative for Williams’ estate because of the lawsuit.

The county claims if Walters remains over the estate, she will be in a position to keep what the county sees as its share of the money.

It is also seeking a temporary restraining order to prevent Walters from using assets from the sheriff’s estate.

On Sept. 7, 2011, Allendale County Probate Judge Brenda Bennett was appointed to oversee the estate after Orangeburg County Probate Judge Pandora Jones-Glover asked to not oversee the case because of her affiliation with Orangeburg County.

Now, we need to know the rest of the story. Lets see what's in the other investigation and see who else's name was on some of those other accounts. Could it be that Ravenell was on at least one? Oh yeah, he said at the debate that he didn't know anything about them nor was he on them. NOT!!!!! ITS TIME TO CLEAN HOUSE. Stand up and say NO MORE. Vote June 12th.

I always had a lot of respect for big Larry, and still do. Unless all this mess turns out to be true.

jesscountry

It never fails that the one we elect to look over us steels from us. I am not surprised at all by this. I actually don't trust anyone in office. They are all crooks. Even the cops that are to protect us are criminals themselves. They drink and drive, do drugs, steel money when they do a drug bust, speed in the cop cars for no reason. We will never find a true honest person to protect us. It's too easy to have access to so much and misuse in office. Trust no one.

truthbtold

amen jesscountry! I agree 1000%

SaltWater

trust no one geez. I know several police officers that lay their lives on the line everyday for you jess. Do us a favor NEVER call the police if you need help, ya know since you dont trust anyone.

norwegian

Dont think Ravenell has anything to hide here...thats just wishful think by RUMORS..Williams was the only one on the acct with Walters bozo... Protect and Swerve!

jesscountry

Sorry if I said trust no one...i do beleive they do good when good is needed but they also are crooks too when it's so easy to have access to so much. It's so easy to do wring when you ARE THE LAW.

CKCN97

Not sure how all this will play out. But I would hope Ravenell has nothing to do with it. He has so far proven to be the law of the land. Shutting down all these Thug Clubs and all these drugs busts and sending these no-goods to jail. Keep up the good work!

TAS

The county had better find a way to better monitor all its elected officials. Elected officials must follow protocol and abide by the same laws as all citizens do. I'm sorry, but I don't feel sorry for Larry or his lady friend. I think it is pretty clear-cut that these two did many wrongs. County managers must do a better job standing up for the county and what's right.

dirtpoor

How about another sheriff,who is still living, who almost everyone knows took money?
And, what are they going to do with Larry? Give him 10 years in U NO where and suspend the sentence?

dirtpoor

And, will Larry ask for a jury trial?

Citizen22

So Jess, since you trust no one in the law division.... you run for sheriff. There are MANY officers and dispatchers that, believe it or not, would lay down their lives to protect you. A simple thank you to the officers that protect you would be greatly appreciated. I am married to an officer, not with ODPS, and there is nothing like wondering if the father of my children and my spouse of 18 years will ever make it home at night. I understand the issue with Sheriff Williams but not everyone...

Grad

This is sad about the former Sheriff. Moving on...However, the current Sheriff, is doing a VERY, GOOD, and GREAT job for the County & citizens of Orangeburg. People need to realize it's election time & people will do "political backstabbing" against Ravenell because they hate to see "change" and see him doing a wonderful job. I'm happy we have Mr. Ravenell as the Sheriff and Cynthia Wilson as the Superintendent. Watch out citizens of Orangeburg, they will turn things around for the better!!!

ceasar1526

My question is why is this issue just coming up. Why did Ravenell have to become sheriff before this issue was brought up. Being that he was apart of the sheriff larry williams team of officers it makes me question his ethics. Why is the lawsuit just coming around election time to me its a poor attempt to get the community to side with you. I think that this is just stupid hes dead, how can you really sue a dead man lol. How can you really ask him family to pay for the mistakes that he made

ceasar1526

Thats like charging someone else for a crime that he committed if this is true.I really feel like there are more important issues to focus on like teens dying, robberies and other crimes that are taking place in this community. Obviously financially the dept was not hurt because they were still able to receive new sheriff cars so forget what has happened ravenell really needs to focus on crime prevention and getting his officers proper training so they dont have such a disconnect with the people

oldcrow

Da Old Crow say, da way I sees it. I dont care if u is da Shuff, a Redneck, or a brubba. If u is sittun down eatin a big ole dinna wid food all over da table. Its hard ta keep yo hand out a da puddinpot. Das like tyin a pok chop round a hound dogs neck an sayin, DONT CA EATIT!

grad1988

"A county audit revealed the existence of 11 bank accounts containing a total of $222,382" and "Walters worked full-time at the credit union, but she also worked full-time at the Sheriff’s Office". She set the accounts up for him/them. If true, when she is found guilty, then dig him up & put his stinking behind in her prison cell. I am sick of people thinking it is Ok to steal from taxpayers. Are there no honest people left in Orangeburg? Is everybody out to defraud the taxpayers?

sudiann

I agree with jesscountry 100% also. when the law and other officials have access to money that is seized during a raid, i feel sure that somewhere someone elses pockets are being filled too, just look at what all has been going on at SCSU with all the new buildings that were suppose to be built,when the till is being full with so much money, there will always a misplacing of funds, with no one knowing, that we just don't know where it is gone. Better wake up citizens it is our money too.

Rumors

UPDATE:interview on wis just proved that ravenell knew about the accounts and vehicles. He has been lieing to every citizen in this county. He said at the debate that he had no knowledge of the accounts or anything that Larry was doing. Now,are you going to trust him about his name not being on any of the accounts? DONT THINK SO!!!! He also told everybody that he wanted the investigation. NOT TRUE. Bill Clark got the investigation going and called SLED in.

Rumors

Ravenell, why are you running? There are alot more questions that need to be answered. 1 How long did you have your little black book? 2 what happened sat. night that you are trying to cover up? 3 where is that so called recording that you have of the jeffrey lady? Last, how can you say that you are eligable to even run in this election when you did your paperwork late? People, we have got to put a man in office that can be trusted and bring integraty back to this sheriff's office.VOTE HEATON!!!

keepin em honest

SOMETHING DID GO DOWN SATURDAY NIGHT. I SAW ABOUT 20 PATROL CARS IN FRONT OF CLUB MAYBACH ON CHESTNUT. THEY HAD PARTIALLY BLOCKED OFF THE STREET. I HEARD GUNSHOTS AND SAW PEOPLE RUNNING ALL THROUGH THE PARKING LOT. IT WAS ABOUT 2:00AM. NOTHING AND I REPEAT NOTHING WAS IN THE PAPER OR ON THE NEWS ABOUT THIS. WHAT IS THE SHERIFF COVERING UP ABOUT THIS INCIDENT AND WHO IS BEING PROTECTED?

MINIMOUSE

dead sheriff stole money?

Jay Leno would like this headline.

I am pretty sure wherever the dead sheriff is, is outside the jurisdiction of the OCSD>

Rumors

Keeping honest, that's interesting to know. That's something new to add to the list. I'm talking about an incident with a certain captain. The sheriff and a major wanted to cover it up. Haven't heard a word about it yet.

2012

NOW IT IS CLEAR TO SEE WHY LARRY DIDN'T WANT HONEST PEOPLE IN HIS COMMAND STAFF. I COULDN'T UNDERSTAND WHY ONE PARTICULAR CAPTAIN LEFT BUT NOW I SEE. HE WOULD ONLY SAY HE COULDN'T WORK FOR A MAN HE DIDN'T RESPECT. ORANGEBURG THINK BACK TO 2008.

portercreek

Someone needs to be checking on his secretary Ms. Brothers. She's about as hateful and dishonest as they come. I'm sure she's involved somehow.

whathehe77

Whathehe77, I always miss a point here and there so, I am a little confuse by some of these comments. Question#1: Is the sheriff suppose to contact the T&D, every time something is wrong? I know he is the sheriff however, he is not the sheriff for T&D. When T&D gets ready they will run the story. Question#2: What if Ravanell did know about it? #3 What would you have like for him to do? Larry Williams was their boss. Which one of them was going to tell him what to do? Just asking..."Whathehe77"!

Kiddingme

Ravenell just keeps on messing up! And you Rav supporters want him in office why? He just can't take the heat. He knows he's guilty, we know he's guilty, why is this campaign to re- elect him still going on? Once a crook, always a crook! That on TV running from Jody Barr was a classic!! We need a sheriff that can act professional and be professional in ALL situations. That's why the HEAT is ON! HEATON for SHERIFF!!!!!

unddertaker954

Sitting here reading some of your comments and realizing that some of you can read but don't know what you are reading. This has nothing to do with the ethic of Sheriff's Ravenell. The article states he ask for the audit not council if he was the crook he could have kept the account and you are the T&D would have known about them. Just saying it easy to sit back and judge. Just to let you know the newspaper don't give you all the facts just enough to sell papers.

tapmsa

I feel this is funny for reason all Sheriffs we have had have been crocked if we get Heaton in their he probaly willbe crocked too. Too me Shaerif Ravenell has cleaned up the county with drugs. Why drag up a Dead man's wromg doing's and disgrace his family! Why is this coming up know and I can not beleive the T@D did not know about this until now.

Rumors

Undertaker, you should see the Wis interview before you speak. The point being made about Ravenell is that he has been telling lies about this. He did not ask sled for the investigation, Bill Clark did. He has been saying that he didn't know anything about the accounts or what Larry was doing, but he meets with sled with a black book of evidence that he had the whole time. We don't need someone like him in office.

Rumors

There are questions that need to be answered but he can't do it so he runs from the media. He knows he was part of that problem and now he wants to hide. How can you call yourself a sheriff and do something like that. No wonder the criminals laugh at you and wont take you serious. They try to hide what is going on around the county because its election time. There is way to much to try and put on here. We have got to get him out of office.

Grad

Do someone of you not realize this just a way to get people to turn against Sheriff Ravenell and have people thinking he had something to do with the former Sheriff's mistakes...Wake up people. Stay focus because it's all a political game. 2nd, Why would Ravenell want to talk to WISTV in the 1st place?? We all know Heaton called WISTV so that he could be interviewed AND the attempt to have the media focus on Ravenell saying something crazy. Next, topic because Ravenell isn't the problem.

Rumors

Grad, i have to agree with you on one thing, it is political. but i can assure you it's no game. this is when issues need to be brought to the publics attention so they will know what is really going on. People need to be turned against Ravenell because he has done nothing but lie to the citizens of this county about many issues. Honestly, do you think an investigating reporter is going to pass up a story like this one that was originally printed in the TandD? Don't think so.

Rumors

You and others are just mad that yall have been lied to and played by Rav.

norwegian

Caesars post at 12:13 is the rantings of a madman...how do you even tie your own shoes man?

Grad

RUMORS and a few others are saying Ravenell knew about former Sheriff's issues, and he's bad for O'burg, but please share with us your proof of this and what has Ravenell did so that he shouldn't be elected again. Personnel, I have only seen extraordinary changes by Ravenell. So, please help understand if I'm missing something....

norwegian

the more I read Caesars comments the madder i get.. with Caesars logic,If I robbed someone of his lifes savings & I have health issues & give all my stolen loot to my girlfriend, then they arent entitled to getting their stolen money back b/c after all I died & its just not my families responsibility for what I did in the past..Great logic Caesar!You are doing good just gettin that computer fired up every day.so that means anyone can steal something, then die & its their peoples for ever..hmm!

beauty33

hello

beauty33

where is my post \

confisus_sum

It seems that the timing of this article is particularly suspect. If you were to poll most residents of Oburg County, they most likely knew this years ago. With an election looming, to make these insinuations now seems to suggest that there is an effort to unseat the current sheriff. Hopefully the newspaper would not participate in such a nefarious campaign. But on the surface...

sicntyrd

Yeah, MM, you're right! Out of the jurisdiction. Williams would probably like to do some time here and straighten things out BEFORE appearing before THE Judge. As for the little missus though, she's got some answering to do and time to pay some people back. I hope she's shown NO leniency.

sparkysrevenge

Big Larry riding down the road with hundreds if not thousands in tow,following him to his resting place in order to pay their respects.Headlines when you die,front page news,pictures and more pictures for days and days on end.

The news trucks were there and parking was at a premium.

Just as we are getting over his loss,
SC State takes his place on a daily basis..Both Williams and SC State are proof possitive that the inmates are running the asylum.

Democrats(wink)Wake up Orangeburg

ceasar1526

@norweigan you really need a hobby of all the post you choose to read mine well that just let me know how important my post are to you. You are incapable of coming up with your own thoughts so you use my comments as an intellectual ladder to climb up on. Listen in high school while you were in the class playing with blocks with a helmet on and riding the bus with the blue sticker and the tinted windows lol. What im saying is why didnt ravenell report this. He waits until he dies and its election

ceasar1526

time again to start this big investigation, i mean everyone can clearly see that this is a way to get more votes. I feel like we do not know if his fiance had any idea where this money was coming from so how could you possibly try to charge someone. Also ravenell should be investigated also because he was williams right hand man. So if you are building a case agaisnt williams and his fiance an fbi investigation should take place of the whole sheriff dept because im sure there are more sheriff

besides williams who participated in illegal activities. Williams served for 3 terms and you mean to tell me ravenell and others are just finidng out about this money please lets be real here. What im saying is if he cant be tried or be arrested for the crime whats the point. What are you all going to dig him up and bring him to court lol. How can ravenell worry about finances right now in a time when people are getting killed and robbed from left to right.

whatmattersmost

Wake Up Ravenell Supporter! Orangeburg County has a candidate running for sheriff that was the Assistant Director of the HIGHEST LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY IN THE STATE OF SOUTH CAROLINA, and that is ROGER HEATON. I'm sure he didn't get there sitting behind a desk, he is a WORKER for the PEOPLE. He could have gone anywhere, but he chose to come to Orangeburg with his experience and knowledge. As a taxpaying citizen of this county I feel priviledged. I don't understand why you don't. VOTE HEATON!

Fossil14

Politics and police do not mix. Let's take notes from Horry county. A county police department and the sheriff handles the jail and civil papers. Absolute power corrupts absolutely!!

Grad

SALTWATER, I totally agree with you!

Oh,my goodness, people give me a break...Do you not realize how many gunshots are heard in cities, but that doesn't mean the Sheriff Dept. is trying to cover up something. Wouldn't you want 20 officers to respond to a club??? What if someone was killed or seriously injuried and "1" officer showed up...Think people, think!

TRY AGAIN....NEXT...

Sure Ravenell did not no nothing about those acounts so why did he ask sled to investigate the finances when he took office. He is just trying to cover his self.

norwegian

They arent tryin to dig him up CEASAR, They just want the stolen finances returned to the county...And do you honestly believe that everybody knows what their bosses are up to? I dont know every move that my boss makes...If i did, he wouldnt be the boss, I would..... Ravenell dealt with criminals not so much the everyday finances of the sheriffs dept..Williams did that himself... You simply cant steal and expect the money not to be returned to the rightful owner..Thats my gripe with your logic!

POSITIVEMIND - You think you know so much about what was going on around the OCSO, maybe you were working for Larry too. How much did you get? @ NORWEGIAN, Ravenell DID NOT work with the criminals, he was MAJOR over Administration until Larry busted him down to a Captain for not doing his job. Major Whetstone was over catching the criminals. I heard he left because of the dishonest that was going on. When the investigation is over, I feel sure we will all be surprised! HEATON FOR SHERIFF - AMEN!

hardeeboy

Even though I no longer live in Orangeburg County,I've known for years about many corrupt there cops dating back to the 80s and up until now. This is why I've never liked them, the county I live in right now the Sheriff was busted and went to prison and some of his Deputies.

The man faced over 307 years and got a slap on the wrist and got only 3 years. There has to be more oversight on these things, I don't care if they say they're a sworn officer of the law or not.

@norweigan you are just incapable of being intelligent i can see this from all of your post. The college football example you gave was horrible because if you were to use that example it should have been head coach and assistant coach. There are no assistant coaches who dont know what the head coach is doing point blank period. So ravenell had to know something about the finances of this dept based on his rank. Therefore norweigan you should go educate yourself or do everyone else a favor and go

play in heavy traffic because you are seriously a joke. You have no idea how a law enforcement agency runs nor do you have an idea how politics work. What you dont understand idiot is by them investigating its costing the taxpayers. By them taking it to court by the time they finish paying for court cost, lawyers it will be about the same amount that they are trying to recover which will in turn take money out of the taxpayers dollars and just pay back the sheriff dept so please just shut up lol

quick question, Larry's girlfriend donated 500.00 to Ravenell for his campain, will the county have to sue rav for that money?

Research

The United States Federal Government has overwhelming evidence against all parties involved here. In brief, Ida Walters, native of Bowman, SC, was the manager of Heritage Trust Federal Credit Union, Millwood Avenue, Columbia, SC, which was later named as the present credit union on record, and is now closed in Columbia, SC. Orangeburg County, Calhoun County, Richland Columbia, City of Columbia, Ida Walters, Larry Williams, Wendell Davis, and several others are all Federal felons.
