Former Magistrate Reprimanded, Posted Bond For Defendant

A magistrate who resigned from judicial office has been publicly reprimanded by the South Carolina Supreme Court.

In one self-reported matter, the magistrate set bond in a criminal matter, reduced the bond to ten bucks and posted it with his own funds.

There were other violations as well. (Mike Frisch)
