COLUMBIA, SC (WIS/WMBF) - The State Grand Jury has handed up several indictments against Chesterfield County Sheriff Sanford "Sam" Parker, Jr. on charges that he used inmates for personal work.

The six indictments cover four counts of misconduct in office and two counts of furnishing contraband to inmates.

The indictment alleges Parker allowed corrections inmates to live outside of the jail, go shopping, dine in public restaurants, and wear civilian clothes in exchange for performing work on his home and personal property.

The case will be prosecuted by the Attorney General's Office.

If convicted, Parker could face up to 10 years in prison for each count of misconduct and 10 years or a fine for each contraband count.
