Mt. Pleasant attorney arrested and charged with obstruction of justice, authorities say
A Mt. Pleasant attorney, Melisa White Gay, has been arrested and accused of obstruction of justice.
Authorities say the incident happened on December 13, 2017.
Investigators say Gay responded to 3841 Bridgeview Drive in North Charleston as the attorney of Dwayne Walker when he was arrested for suspicion on trafficking cocaine and possession with intent to distribute marijuana.
An affidavit shows that Gay then called the suspect’s girlfriend to tell her to remove money and paperwork from her home and take it to an associate of the suspect.
The affidavit says SLED agents overheard the conversation between Gay and Walker’s girlfriend.
Investigators say Gay admitted to a SLED agent that she did place a phone call to Walker’s girlfriend and said she knew it was illegal.
