Wilson County jail administrator demoted
Sheriff tight-lipped on change at county detention center




Sheriff Calvin Woodard won’t say why he demoted the Wilson County Detention Center’s top jailer this month.

Willie Lucas received a $13,000 pay cut effective Jan. 1, according to county personnel records. Through his spokeswoman, the sheriff said he would not provide a reason for the administrative change.

"He’s declining to comment on it,” sheriff’s Chief of Staff Wanda Samuel said Friday. Woodard did not return a phone message seeking comment.

Lucas earned $53,952 as a captain in the sheriff’s office and detention center administrator, according to records provided by Assistant County Manager Denise Stinagle. On Jan. 1, his job title changed to Detention Officer Level I and his salary fell to $40,764.

Samuel said the sheriff would not say who he appointed to replace Lucas as jail administrator. Capt. Tony Hardy is now believed to be in charge of the jail.

Hardy previously worked in the sheriff’s Professional Standards Division, which investigates internal affairs.

As of Friday afternoon, Lucas still was listed as jail administrator on the Wilson County government website’s detention center page.

Lucas owns and operates day care centers in Wilson and Rocky Mount that abruptly closed their doors in November. It’s not clear whether the business closures were related to Lucas’s demotion at the sheriff’s office.

Parents arrived at JSL Development Center on Pender Street Nov. 30 to find that the center had closed. They complained that staff failed to notify them in advance so that they could make other child care arrangements.

Both JSL locations received superior ratings in recent state inspections, but regulators have investigated several complaints over the past three years. The N.C. Division of Child Development and Early Education ruled some complaints unfounded, but it upheld several others, including electrical problems, no proof of insurance for JSL vehicles and failure to conduct criminal background checks every three years.

Regulators said each violation had been corrected.

Child care centers aren’t required to notify state officials when they close down, according to the N.C. Department of Health and Human Services.

@truth said...

Please!!! I see that someone always provides a colorful story on each of Calvin's articles on how he came to the rescue. Please continue with your colorful fiction stories. They make me laugh. You always make yourself out not to know a thing about the office and it's officers but its obvious your working there and trying to make light the comments on here. I'm an 80 year old female and a deputy helped me across the street one day. Oh don't forget the day my cat was stuck in a tree and a big burly deputy with a glowing light around him appeared from a golden gate and got my cat. Blah blah blah. The house is not as clean as you think it is or you wouldn't be trying to convince readers that its been cleaned. I know of several

You right about deputies being dissatisfied with sheriff Woodard. I spoke to several deputies and somme were mad and were no scared to voice the way they felt about the way things are being run, Always in FEAR of being fird

Mr Woodard said...

why was Lucas given such a high salary for a person who is a level 1 jailer? Like to see what kind of donation he gave yo prior to being elected, is it a political payback?

truth said...

Don't know anyone on here probably nor anyone at the Sheriff's office, but I own a small business on east side and before Calvin I never saw any deputies out my way. Since Calvin I see deputies all the time and one even stopped to check on me when they noticed I was there very late at night and truck in the back. I really appreciated that! As far as politics, I stay far way. If you work there, he's the boss. Leave if you don't want to work there. A Sheriff is one of the most powerful political offices in any county; hopefully you are not just realizing that fact. I don't know any new Sheriff that doesn't clean house, else why elect one. The President of the US does the same thing.

This forum has gone beyond its subject. Please remove so this foolish will be stopped.

Something can't be right in that department when at least 4 officers/deputies have resigned in the past few months...

Friday, February 08, 2013 at 12:07 AM Whining staff said...

If you work there or you are a posting family member in the blogs and i would just go elsewhere. If he fires you then draw a 20 percent check

Friday, February 08, 2013 at 12:06 AM His daughter said...

Now we talking about his family. What a sick crab. Wish it was yours. Sorry you may be a drug dealer I better shut up

Friday, February 08, 2013 at 12:03 AM To @ you said said...

Guess you was the one who did not get the administrator job. So you are better qualified now. Lol

Friday, February 08, 2013 at 12:01 AM At 21 said...

Good to have someone neutral see what is going on lol. Seems to me it is the same person typing. I would not work in nobody's law enforcement and did not vote but if you got fired and posted all your anger I can only wait until the election. Fired officers trying to derail a sheriff. Ha ha that is so funny. Woodard needs to not sworn you three in anyway. Lol. Ohhhh lol

Friday, February 08, 2013 at 11:57 PM Got a plan said...

Hey Woodard is to the point he needs to keep doing his job and kiss he slob party rear. And the deputies rear becaus they want gay back. Do him a big favor let him know and then quit. Oh I forgot if you quit then you would have to lie that you was fired

Friday, February 08, 2013 at 11:54 PM The truth always comes out said...

If any of you think this is the ONLY thing that Woodard has hiding in his closet... think again. There are plenty more skeletons where that one came from. Just wait... they will all come tumbling out sooner rather than later. This information about Slick Willie has been surfacing since Woodard took office and there were entities that were privy to the information but did not circulate it for whatever reason. There are a lot more things that are going on that just haven't been made public yet... mostly due to the fact they don't want to lose their jobs... If Woodard doesn't like something he makes it known ... His attitude is that he is the most powerful person in the county and what he says goes and it doesn't matter if it endangers his deputies' lives. Don't believe me? Ask a deputy you know and if they aren't fearful for their job they will confirm this. The first sign was when Woodard took office and the very next day the unlucky 19 were history.... Guess what... most of those deputies supported Gay in the election and that was their only flaw. Woodard got rid of some top-notch law enforcement officers and weakened the Sheriff's Office and the services provided to the taxpayers. This "I'm the Sheriff and I will do what I want, when I want, How I want, I don't care who gets hurt in the process" attitude is self serving and egotistical. Wake up Wide Awake... things CAN and WILL get worse... watch and see.

Friday, February 08, 2013 at 11:52 PM Uh mom duh said...

Wish the crying fired ones will man up. Tell Woodard what you are blogging then go to the paper when he fires you. You should get your job back. From famous words. Man or woman up mr or mrs no longer there

Friday, February 08, 2013 at 11:50 PM Good said...

I am glad he did not attend any functions. Last I checked the sheriff works for everybody. Mighty funny the people who no longer work there want be hired by other agencies. That is your bloggers. The ones who resigned before they were fired or was fired before they resigned. If I was sheriff which I am not qualified to be I would fire you too. You gripe about gay then you gripe about Woodard.... Get of your rear and do better. The only thing I have a problem with is that he should have dismissed you earlier.

Friday, February 08, 2013 at 11:47 PM @said said...

Jesus Christ, Calvin woodard same thing! You must be his disciple. I doubt very much that 1 person typed 53 negative comments about him especially since he's not worth the trouble. Maybe you should SHAKE YOUR HEAD right on over to the board of elections and pay your $1000.00 an file in November. As most youngins would say. Lmao ttyl. Maybe I should type the whole comment like that so you can understand it. Smh.

Friday, February 08, 2013 at 9:30 PM to said said...

Thats the point most of the deputies have been to school (BLET)! And still make less than Lucas who hasn't! You sure you know what you are talking about here?

Thursday, February 07, 2013 at 8:49 PM @ said said...

If you sit there and think that it's ok for someone with no detention certification no law enforcement certification who has only worked at the office since calvin was elected, who does nothing but sit in a room and mash buttons all day. If you think that it's ok for that man to make 10k MORE than a man who has a law enforcement certification. Who has been employed for many more years who answers calls. YOU are blind or just plain ignorant! Blind loyalty is for the weak or a sheep! Which one are YOU?

Thursday, February 07, 2013 at 8:45 PM said...

FYI...I am not 21 years old. I am grown woman who works and pays my fair share of taxes. I did not vote for neither Gay or Woodard. I do not know Sheriff Woodard...never met him a day in my life. It just seems to me that the same people are saying the same things just different wording and yes I am SHAKING MY HEAD. If you don't like what Sheriff Woodard is doing then politely wait your turn to vote him out. I would guess if Jesus Christ was sheriff of this city, a great majority of you will still gripe and complain. Better yet go to school (BLET) get some experience and campaign for sheriff and improve the sheriff dept. that you gripe about every day.

Thursday, February 07, 2013 at 8:32 PM The Fortune-teller said...

What Woodard fails to understand is him being sheriff has more to do with folks being tired of Wayne Gay than folks actually thinking he was a good fit. Next time around won't be like the first time. Count on it!

Thursday, February 07, 2013 at 2:49 PM Agreed said...

@ I TOLD YOU SO... GREAT POINT. Woodard has failed to attend any of the functions you mentioned but come a few months from now he'll regret that mistake.

Thursday, February 07, 2013 at 2:41 PM @ new vehicles said...

This has nothing to do with new vehicles! It's bigger than that. This is hard working qualified employees getting trampled on.

Thursday, February 07, 2013 at 12:38 PM New Vehicles said...

I hope the 5 new vehicles they get go to the deputies on the road so that our county can be safely patroled. This would be a step in the right direction for Sheriff Woodard.

Thursday, February 07, 2013 at 7:40 AM not surprised said...

what else is new with woodard everyone knows how unfair he is and how he feels his position look at what he drives around town why can't he drive a regular car and save the tax payers money but money is nothing to him look at his salary and lucas's think he cares all the deputies should go on strike untill they are treated fairly and paid for puting themselves in danger everyday.

Thursday, February 07, 2013 at 10:12 PM @to said said...

It's not just one person. There is more than one person dissatisfied with Woodard decision making. Accept the fact that people are speaking the truth about what they see he is doing to that office. It reflects badly on Wilson and other counties accross the state also see it. When decisions are made based on qualifications and experience of the officers under him instead of his personal agenda, then he will realize that things will be 100 times better in that office and about their sheriff. But the damage has been done and people are seeing his lack of leadership and management skills. Just because he is polite to people and courteous doesn't mean he can lead. He may be the nicest guy in the world and may be liked because he has those characteristics but it takes more than that to have a successful dept. he mistakes bullying and threats as management skills. He promotes based on friendship instead of who is best qualified. He would have more loyalty and respect from the guys under him if he was the fair person he made himself out to be during his campaign. The only person who doesn't see this is you. So I can only assume your about 21 years old and a close friend of his or his daughter with the smh at the end of your comment. Your not old enough or smart enough to realize what management skills are. I understand your basing your views on your friendship with him but please leave the management comments to the adults.

Thursday, February 07, 2013 at 9:03 PM I disagree said...

I want our sheriff to do his job and not be a politican. I want the Democratic Party in Wilson to get rid of its poor leadership, and do the politicking. (And keep Mark Bibbs off Democratic ticket.)

Wednesday, February 06, 2013 at 11:44 AM I told you so said...

I am a loyal black Democrat. In the 2010 primary for sheriff, I supported Wayne Gay, not Calvin Woodard. Had his sign in my yard and gave him a small donation that I could afford. After the primary and Calvin won, I began to say the wrong man won, because he's not a loyal, party person Democrat. All he needed to do was to wait four years until Gay retired, run and not divided the county Democratic Party. Then many of the Gay supporters would not be out to get him. I voted for Calvin in November against John Farmer. I am a loyal Democrat. But Calvin is now engaging in self sabotage. Willie Lucas should have been fired, not demoted. All the drug busts are fine, but there are more aspects to the sheriff's job. The Wison County Sheriff is not just the county's top law enforcement officer, he's the county's top Democratic politician also. Calvin does not do that part of his job. He's not the county's top Democrat. I attended every Democratic fundraing event last year in 2012, for every Democratic candidate. Walter Dalton, Mark Bibbs, Lisa Stith and the S.L.O.B. Calvin came to guess which one? NONE! I stayed until the end at each event, he never came. Next year I will not vote for him unless he changes the direction of the Sheriff's office, cleans house and behaves like a loyal Democrat. If he doesn't, I won't give him one dime. I will support a Democrat who runs against him next May. If he wins the primary, this time I'll vote for the Republican next November. I hope it's Wayne Gay!

Wednesday, February 06, 2013 at 7:08 AM Election time said...

The courthouse security team has been messed up from day one. The patrol division is a joke now. The administration is as dysfunctional as the leadership of the Wilson Democratic Party chair and treasurer. Next year, 2014 we vote for sheriff again. Time for Calvin to show people why he needs to stay or he will be gone. I'd vote for Wayne Gay as a Republican. I voted for Calvin before, but not again!

Tuesday, February 05, 2013 at 7:47 PM To "I Got" said...

That is just the narrow-minded, bigoted attitude that got this county is the mess we are in now. Grow up. I am not Caucasian and I'm upset by this and No, I didn't vote for Sheriff Gay, I voted for Woodard. The PERSON is the problem NOT THE COLOR OF THEIR SKIN.... Open your eyes.

Tuesday, February 05, 2013 at 7:29 PM to said said...

its a central point that everyone is trying to make. you cant honestly sit there and think this is ok.

Tuesday, February 05, 2013 at 4:30 PM @ I got said...

Not because he's black. Because it's wrong!

Tuesday, February 05, 2013 at 4:01 PM said...

It seems like the same person is making the same comments over and over just different wording...smh....

Tuesday, February 05, 2013 at 2:29 PM I got said...

I got no complains with Sheriff Woodard. Negative comments are from Wayne Gay supporters. Alot are because he's black.

Tuesday, February 05, 2013 at 1:45 PM CW supporter @ I belive said...

Wake up "I believe". The negative comments are coming from CW supporters that are seeing the TRUE Calvin, that are disappointed in him for lying about how he has morals & is truthful & wanted change AND disapponted in themselves for believing it. NOTHING has changed except he hasn't been there 28 years yet. He is just as arrogant as Wayne Gay ever was!

Tuesday, February 05, 2013 at 12:26 PM Shameful said...

The negative comments are coming from concerned citizens who were promised a "transparent" Office of the Sheriff. So far it has been about as transparent as mud. The only thing that is clear about any of this is that the experienced employees are being treated unfairly.

Tuesday, February 05, 2013 at 11:19 AM @ I beileve said...

Those days are over buddy. I beleive in this case most negative remarks are coming from the employees. Keep lying to yourself though.

Tuesday, February 05, 2013 at 10:23 AM @ becca said...

Whats he hiding? It's all right here in the paper. Lucas was a big part of Woodards campaign so Woodard hooks up Lucas with a hig ranking position at the office after he is elected. A position that Lucas is not qualified nor capable of working. Lucas's shady background then catches up to him so Woodard has to demote him due to public outcry. BUT he still owes him for being loyal to the campaign so he pays him $10,000 more than what certified officers with multiple years of service in the same position are making! That sounds about right until Woodard clears this up. The tax payers are waiting Calvin.

Tuesday, February 05, 2013 at 10:00 AM becca said...

Sounds like Ole' Calvin is hiding something ....

Tuesday, February 05, 2013 at 9:39 AM I believe said...

Most negative remarks are coming from Wayne Gay's fan club. I support Sheriff Woodard completely.

Tuesday, February 05, 2013 at 7:51 AM Bottom line said...

The citizens demand answers! Why are our tax dollars being spent on the salary of an obviously incompetent employee when more qualified men and women are in the same position getting less? A steward of tax money? I think not. Bring on the election!

Monday, February 04, 2013 at 6:27 PM The Truth said...

I have complete confidence in Sheriff Calvin Woodary.

Monday, February 04, 2013 at 6:09 PM Shameful said...

It is shameful that a person of Mr.Lucas' character and reputation was put in charge of the facility to begin with. His record was less than stellar at what he did have experience with. And now that he got in trouble AGAIN for the same thing, he gets "demoted" to a job and is making more money than those who have given their blood, sweat and tears for years to working in that facility. That is not punitive, that is just plain wrong. I wonder what would happen to those of us in jobs that were accused and found guilty of wrong doing.... would our employers put us in another position we were not qualified for and pay us more than peer coworkers with years of experience? NO. We would be fired and left with no benefits or recourse. Why should the Sheriff's office be any different? It is a sad situation that these things are just coming to light. It all began with the way Sheriff Woodard handled the employees he let go and replaced them with his "friends" with no experience. So now we have a dead beat jailer and a "Chief of Staff" that have better benefits and privileges than those people who have put their life on the lines for our safety. Hopefully everyone's eyes will be opened and we will put this debacle to rest during the next election. And to "Funny" I agree, it most definitely the first time the Sheriff has declined a photo op.... Interesting!

at salaries said i bet she is making more than some of the captains and all she is a public information officer which they can hire a civilian and pay them less. I wonder how she got up in the rank so quickly without and kind of promtional process? Where is the fairness in those kind of promotion like the ex adminstator was getting?

Monday, February 04, 2013 at 5:06 PM SALARIES said...

ALL THIS IS OLD NEWS! AND ITS JUST HITTING THE PAPER. ASK ONE OF THOSE SCARED JAILERS THAT WOODARD HAS THREATENED NOT TO TALK ABOUT HIM!!!! DEPUTIES REALLY WORKING AND THIS MAN GETTING PAID MORE THAN DEPUTIES THAT HAVE BEEN THERE OVER 5 OR MORE YEARS. NO PICTURE AND NO COMMENTS?????why?????

Monday, February 04, 2013 at 3:11 PM Salaries said...

Would love to see ALL OF THE EMPLOYEES SALARIES! ESP. SPOKESWOMAN!!!

Monday, February 04, 2013 at 3:07 PM Reality said...

The reality of working for a Sheriff is compairable to working for a dictator. It is his way or no way. He has total control over your pay. Sheriff Woodard spoke of getting the agency accredited, this will never be able to happen with him making the moves that he is making now. The morale in the agency is lower now than it was during the previous election battles. Employees are simply comong to work becaue jobs are scarce. The Sheriff is always quick to say that if they dont like it then quit. His actions are just that of his great mentor, Wayne Gay. For the deputies to be told what to do by a major that has no experience to a captain refusing to retire so others can advance to underhanded positions being developed for those closest to him. I understand that the sheriff can hire and fire at will; however, commitioners should help with the compression in the pay of employees.

Monday, February 04, 2013 at 2:18 PM I think I remember said...

Deputies organizing to elect Woodard. They should organize to vote him out.

Monday, February 04, 2013 at 12:02 PM said...

Were are all those "Calvin is holier than thou" supporters? You know who you are! Democratic party under Gregory in shambles and Calvin playing favorites. Get what you ask for go figure. I guess all that walking on water attitude has come home has it not??

Monday, February 04, 2013 at 10:11 AM no one said...

No one takes a job in law enforcement especially at WCSO to make money. Surely you knew that before applying?? It has been that way for a very very long time. I would not do what those folks do for 10 times the salary and I know a few 20+ year veterans that wished they had taken a different path now that kids are in college and the economy is tanked.

Monday, February 04, 2013 at 9:04 AM Let us see said...

Now lets see when someone else does wrong / Will it be the same punishment (or will it just depend on who you are. Lucas did not deserve the position he got when there were employees already trained and had time on that could have done a better job and that would not have been or have a shady background!!!!!!!!!!!!

Monday, February 04, 2013 at 8:48 AM @ where did you see 2 years said...

YES! He started out as captain NO law enforcement back ground. NO dentention certification. No progression in rank. It happens.

Monday, February 04, 2013 at 2:16 AM To where did you see 2 years: said...

Lucas has in fact, only been employed in law enforcement for 2 years, with no prior law enforcement experience before being hired as jail administrator. His nameplate that he wears daily has his date of hire as 2011, and he will (or would) volunteer the information to people who inquired that he previously ran daycares with his family.
For the record, with the 2% pay raise the WCSO employees received for the first time in 4 years (versus the commissioner's 18% raise) last year, most detention officers make just at $30,000 a year. Until the raise, they made $28,488/yr. The officers I describe have been with the WCSO for several years more than Officer Lucas. Until he moved onto better things, my husband was one of those officers that was so lowly paid with nearly a decade of law enforcement experience, so I speak only what I know to be fact. I'm so glad he's away from that drama filled office. He worked under both administrations, and Gay was a better Sheriff to work for. I pray for those who have to work there now, and I pray for our Sheriff to hear what his constituents are saying and to change his ways despite his pride. I voted for him in the election, but won't again. What's done in the dark will come to light.

Monday, February 04, 2013 at 10:36 PM what a waste said...

reckon woodard will step on everybody that works there to keep his "click" on the payrole. sounds familiar don't it? retired trooper as a major drawing two paychecks, a captain that could retire and is sticking around holding up other promotions, and a jailor that makes more than most other supervisors. is gay still in office? reckon woodard doesnt have any faith in the other officers just like he did.

Monday, February 04, 2013 at 9:32 PM TAX PAYER SAID said...

cant wait for the truth to come out, their is more to this. what happen to transparent????????

Sunday, February 03, 2013 at 4:31 PM Can't Believe said...

Can't believe people are finally seeing the light.... People were had... Mr. Lucas ran Calvin's campaign.... so why is anyone surprise he is still employed?

Sunday, February 03, 2013 at 4:05 PM I swear said...

I'd vote for Calvin Woodard anyday over anyone, especially Wayne Gay.

Sunday, February 03, 2013 at 3:40 PM Doesn't matter said...

We were all fooled by Mr Woodard. I feel like he only said he would be fair in order to gain the trust and votes of those that work at the office. This news of the salary bothers me because I am honest and hard working for the citizens and I make nowhere close to that. I have a lot more time in working there. I chose the job as a career and not a political opportunity. Things are shaping up to be just as bad as the last administration. WDT I invite you to post all of our salaries. I have no shame in what I make!

Sunday, February 03, 2013 at 10:24 AM Wilson said said...

Lacas has always been shady and Calvin has him running the jail. When all along Lacus should have probably been in jail himself. When are the Calvin supporters going to realize Calvin was a mistake to

He shouldn't be anything and TOTALLY released of his duties and sent home.

Sunday, February 03, 2013 at 7:29 AM Concerned said said...

Guess he will have to reopen the daycares that he and his family operated to supplement his $40.000 salary. What a wasted.....

What i say about that is correctional officers dont even make that a year.

Sunday, February 03, 2013 at 11:13 PM CW supporter said...

The certified detention officers and sworn officers should walk out! Willie Lucas could not pass the test to be a certified detention officer and is not a sworn law enforcement officer and makes more money than the detention officers and many of the sworn law enforcement officers that have many years of service behind them. Get rid of dead weight and boost morale in the process. Don’t make yourself look like a bigger egomaniac by “proving” to all that you are incapable of making mistakes Calvin. It is past time you come down to earth & stop thinking you walk on water. You will earn and keep the respect you desire by doing what you are supposed to and STOP bullying your employees by sending vague empty rambling threats. You said you wanted an open door policy but your employees would rather be treated like you DEMAND being treated. You were voted in and you can be voted OUT!

Sunday, February 03, 2013 at 9:40 PM Believe said...

It's an era on the pay of detention officer 1

Saturday, February 02, 2013 at 7:15 PM Where Did You See 2 years? said...

I don't see in this article where it says Lucas had only been with the Sheriff's Department 2 years. Where did the commenters below get that info? Even if he had only been with the Wilson County Sheriff's Office for 2 years, he certainly wouldn't have a Captain's rank and the additional responsibility as the detention center administrator without some sort of prior LEO experience and BLET certification, would he? Just want to know if people have their facts straight, since they're throwing stones.

Saturday, February 02, 2013 at 6:26 PM Funny said...

First time in a long while that I've ever seen Mr. Woodard refuse a comment (or picture) to the paper...

Saturday, February 02, 2013 at 4:25 PM ??? said...

It's sad that he was even appointed for the head job of the jail, but even sadder that he STILL has a job and making $40,000.00 a year. This man couldn't even pass basic law enforcment or jail requirements and he still has a job making more than offcers/jailers who truly know what they are doing!!! And they said the past Administration(Gay) was crooked...SMH

Saturday, February 02, 2013 at 1:27 PM To Calvin Woodard said...

Correct this problem. There are long time hard working deputies making way less at that office that you said would be transparent. A dentention 1 officer with 2 years does not deserve 40 thousand dollars! Be the upsatnding Sheriff you said you would be. Do whats right! DO WHATS FAIR!
From a supporter

Saturday, February 02, 2013 at 1:03 PM A fact said...

Willie is making more than some deputies that have been with the Sheriff's Office for years. What a shame and a slap in the face of the men and women who truly work hard for this county and Sheriff's office.

Saturday, February 02, 2013 at 10:32 AM waaaaait!!! said...

he has been there 2 years and is now a detention level 1 officer and makes 40k? SHAAAAAAME! I wonder if thats starting salary for all detention 1 officers. Hint, the answer in NO!

Saturday, February 02, 2013 at 9:14 AM Salary said...

This is so untrue! Detention Officer 1's DO NOT make $40,000 a year! If the man got demoted then his salary should be where all of the other officers pay is at this time. He is an undeserving human that does nothing for this county!!!!!

Saturday, February 02, 2013 at 9:02 AM welll well well..... said...

There are a lot of reasons.... I am just shocked this made it in thecpaper finally.....
