BREAKING: Kelvin Sewell found guilty of misconduct in 2014 incident
POCOMOKE CITY, Md. – Former Pocomoke City Police Chief Kelvin Sewell has been found guilty of misconduct for interfering with a police investigation back in 2014.
Sewell was found guilty of this crime back in 2016, however the high courts overturned his conviction because he wasn’t allowed to present all of his witnesses.
It was proven in court that on November 21, 2014, Sewell interfered with a car crash investigation by telling an officer to file the report as an accident and not a hit and run. The state alleges that Sewell did this to help a friend and fellow fraternity brother and used his power in a fraudulent way.
Since this is a common law crime, we’re told there’s no set penalty, meaning it’s up to the budget to give Sewell any sort of sentence that is deemed reasonable and not cruel or unusual.
Sewell tells 47 ABC that he plans to appeal his conviction as soon as possible.
