Update on my post of May 2, "Lowdown on the Upstate."
JOHN GILBERT LUDWIG
At noon today WYFF-TV in Greenville, S.C., covered a protest in front of the Greenville County Courthouse where concerned citizens are gathering to demand the arrest of John Gilbert Ludwig in the death of Frederick William “Bill” Bardsley. The protest is a result of the Facebook entry, “Indict John Ludwig Now!” The site now has 1,377 members.
The unusual circumstances surrounding this death can be found in my previous post. Ludwig has hired three prominent Greenville attorneys, who say their client is being unjustly tried by public opinion.
Local law enforcement officials and the county prosecutor, Solicitor Bob Ariail, continue to say they are waiting for the full investigation report on the incident, which occurred on April 25.
GARY BURGESS, SR.
An attorney for Gary Burgess, Sr., appeared in court this morning in Anderson, S.C. Burgess, a former Anderson County District 4 schools superintendent and high school principal, pleaded “not guilty” to a charge of “soliciting an immoral act.” According to the police report, Burgess approached an undercover policeman in a local park.
Burgess had been hired as superintendent of District 2 schools in Hampton County, S.C. That county now has hired another applicant.
According to WYFF-TV, Burgess has been pastor of Universal Body of Christ church at Inman, S.C., for more than 25 years.
