The news is out: [ORANGEBURG, S.C. (AP) — A former county council member and ex-South Carolina state trooper charged with sexually abusing girls and lying about it while trying to buy a gun has been granted bail again.
Ex-Bamberg County Councilman Kerry Trent Kinard, who faces up to life in prison if convicted of the state charges, remains jailed for now pending a federal bond hearing, The Times and Democrat of Orangeburg reported. Federal prosecutors said he lied when he said wasn’t under felony indictment or a restraining order while trying to buy a gun in December.
“I don’t know if anyone’s pleaded stupidity before, but he was stupid,” Kinard’s lawyer, Bakari Sellers, said in reference to the gun charge.]
There are many of them floating around the planet.
