FORREST COUNTY, MS (WDAM) - Charles Bolton, who was convicted of nine felonies last Thursday, was terminated Monday.

During the Forrest County Board of Supervisors meeting, the supervisors asked Sheriff Billy McGee if he had any comment or matters to bring before the board, to which he declined.

The supervisors went into executive session for less than an hour to discuss "personnel issues" that were related to Bolton.

Just before 3 p.m. Sheriff Billy McGee filed separation papers with the county for his termination.

"Charles Bolton is no longer a Forrest County employee," said Forrest County Supervisors Board President, David Hogan.

Sheriff Billy McGee did not return phone calls for comment.
