Fired? Sheriff Robert Hardwick removes Sheriff's spokesman, CHARLES MULLIGAN, ex-Sheriff DAVID SHOAR's Brother-in-law

Fired?  Wonder why?  Guilty of obstructing and misleading The New York Times, PBS Frontline and other news media about the death of Michelle O'Connell in the home of Deputy Jeremy Banks?  You tell me.

As stated in my February 4, 2021 request for compliance review investigation to USDOJ. St. Johns County 

Failed to remedy corruption and civil rights violations by St. Johns County Sheriff, including embezzlements, Fourth Amendment violations and notorious coverup of September 2, 2010 homicide of Ms. Michelle O'Connell by Deputy Jeremy Banks, for which two (2) judges found probable cause.  Corrupt former Sheriff DAVID SHOAR (2005-2021) requires investigation and prosecution of SHOAR and others acting in concert with him.  See

Sheriff's spokesman CHARLES MULLIGAN might never have been a "Commander" on his merits. 

But his corrupt, bumptious, bully brother-in-law was Sheriff DAVID SHOAR, who legally changed his name from "HOAR" in 1994.

"CHUCK" MULLIGAN was part of Florida's "DROP" program -- a double-dipping rehired annuitant.

From St Augustine Record, here's a 196 word press release, albeit one masquerading as a news story, with the byline of reporter Sheldon. Gardner::

After a few decades of service, St. Johns County Sheriff's Office spokesman Chuck Mulligan will be leaving the agency soon. 

Peret Pass, who worked on Sheriff Robert Hardwick's campaign, is handling some public affairs work for the sheriff's office while a permanent replacement is found. 

Mulligan began working as a law enforcement officer at the sheriff's office more than 33 years ago; he began working with members of the media about 10 years into his career. 

"I never once imagined that my path would take me into the office of the sheriff to deal with media on a day-to-day basis," he said. 

In a statement sent to media outlets, Mulligan said that a transition plan is underway. Mulligan said he expects to leave the agency by the end of February. 

Mulligan retired in 2018 but remained the face of the agency, working as a contractor for media relations and communications.
