Sheriff Billy McGee makes questionable, sworn statements in divorce filing against wife


Sheriff Billy McGee has filed from divorce and in the sworn document he claims the following in paragraph 6.

The Plaintiff would show unto the Court that he has done everything within his power to make a success of the marriage of the parties; and that has been a good and dutiful husband, and has performed each and every obligation placed upon him by virtue of his marital vows; but not withstanding this, the Defendant has given him just cause for divorce.

Count records in the mistress’ divorce proceedings indicate that the affair began in the fall of 2013.  The two have been seen publicly together as early as June 2014, when her divorce was final.  McGee even appeared in Chancery court in support of her when a judge ruled on January 16th that the mistress’ children could not be around the sheriff.

What’s interesting is that the date of the divorce filing is the day before the hearing involving the mistress’ children. What’s even more interesting is that a month after the filing, his wife has not been served with the filing; so no court date is even set. After four months, if his wife is not served, she could petition to dismiss the filing.

McGee’s grounds for divorce cites habitual cruel and unusual punishment on the part of his wife.




  1. The Sheriff is the most powerful elected leader in the county, and he is in the position which requires the highest moral standard.

    It’s no wonder $1 million to $2 million in food was stolen from the jail over 12 years and while she sheriff is cavorting with a married woman in county vehicles. Think he didn’t know what was going on with stolen food?

    People want to dismiss this as personal and “none of my business,” but the truth be told, this is very much the public’s business and In the interest to the voting public. These are public records.

  2. Your under oath, tell the truth and you don’t have to remember what you said. Also remember, that these things can often grow in scope and size if you try to cover up. There’s an old adage, the cover up was worse than the crime. Many have went to prison for trying to cover up, not the actual offense.
