GREENVILLE, SC (WSPA) – The attorney for Greenville County Sheriff Will Lewis has filed a motion to dismiss a lawsuit against him.

Despite calls from the governor, lieutenant governor, county council members and others to step down, Lewis will remain in office while the S.C. Law Enforcement Division investigates the accusations.

The suit was filed by former sheriff’s office employee Savanah Nabors. She alleges she was sexually harassed and stalked by Sheriff Lewis after an encounter on a business trip to Charlotte.

Nabor’s attorney says they will soon file an opposition to the dismissal motion.
