You'll want to stay up late tonight for a WIS exclusive

LEXINGTON COUNTY, SC (WIS) - By now you've heard former Lexington County Sheriff James Metts has been sentenced to a year in prison on a charge of helping to harbor illegal immigrants.

"I'm highly disappointed at the judge's decision, but I'm not questioning his decision," Metts said in a brief statement following the sentencing. "I'm going to go ahead and deal with this in a very positive way. I'm going to serve my time. Put it behind me.”

"At least now we're going to have closure and I'm going to get on with my life," he said, before walking away from the federal courthouse in downtown Columbia without taking questions.

Tonight at 11, in a very revealing conversation you'll see only on WIS, he sits down with Senior Investigative Reporter Jack Kuenzie to answer some of the questions you've had on your mind since the man who served 42 years in law enforcement was indicted last year.
