Gilbert Publicly Censured

BRUNSWICK COUNTY -- At a Friday night meeting, the Brunswick County School publicly censured board member Ray Gilbert.

The board also decided to send information about his restraining order to the attorney general which could displace Gilbert from his position on the school board if a court hearing is held. Gilbert was the only opposing vote on Friday night.

West Brunswick High School secretary Yvonne Hankins filed a restraining order against married man Ray Gilbert. Hankins filed the restraining order because she felt threatened by some of his statements while the two were having an affair.

Gilbert has also been barred from all Brunswick County Schools.

In a letter, Gilbert has publicly admitted to having an affair with Hankins.
