What’s the Deal With William Greg Fincher?

The Mauldin Director of Public Works was apparently picked up for kidnapping recently and I can only find bare bones info on his arrest. I do notice that his $30,000 bond seems awful light for a guy suspected of kidnapping.

The Easley Patch says that this isn’t his first rodeo:

It is not Fincher’s first brush with the law. According to court records, he was charged with leaving the scene of an auto accident in May 2011 in Horry County. Those charges were dropped in December 2011. In that case, Fincher was represented by Mauldin’s city attorney John Duggan.

Which means my tax dollars were spent defending him? Because we don’t pay him enough to hire an attorney to deal with his personal matters?

This whole thing stinks of corruption. If I’m not mistaken this is the third Public Works director who ended up a scumbag. Speaking of corruption Fincher oversees sanitation in Mauldin which according to pg 12 of the Mauldin 2012 projected budget costs you and me a cool $1.5 million. A half a million is in salaries, $100, 000 is in insurance, $65,000 of “inmate expenses” whatever that is. I’m just saying his sanitation department’s budget looks padded out. For example in 2011 and 2012 the sanitation budget has $20,000 for allocated containers yet in 2010 they only spent $7,061.16 on containers.

But more importantly I tried looking up his case on the Greenville court database and got nothing. It hasn’t been entered yet? And no reporters have bothered getting more details when the Director of Public Works for a local city is charged with kidnapping?

With people like this running Mauldin it’s no wonder that poor woman running the Mauldin Open Air Market is getting her land stolen.

Seems like a cover up is happening.
