Press Release

As many of you already know, Laurens County Magistrate Mareno Foggie has been arrested and charged with manufacturing marijuana. On July 17, 2018 he turned himself in to the Abbeville County Sheriff’s Office to be booked on that charge. Our Office has been in contact with SLED and Abbeville County Sheriff’s Office in reference to this situation. I would refer any specific questions regarding this investigation to the Abbeville County Sheriff’s Office and/or SLED.

“We all conduct ourselves with a code of ethics and it is very disturbing to see one of our appointed Magistrates charged with such a crime. Mr. Foggie was a newly appointed magistrate and hopefully the effects of this on any criminal and/or civil litigation will be minimal” - Sheriff Don Reynolds.
