Misconduct in office charges have been dismissed, and expunged, against former Horry County police officer Luke Green, according to the Horry County public index.

Green was facing three charges, but the state decided they would no longer prosecute, according to court records.

ABC 15 reached out to the S.C. Attorney General's Office to find out why the charges were disposed of. We're waiting to hear back.

Green was offered a plea deal in August 2017 and his attorney, at the time, said that offer was accepted.

The plea offer was that Green would enter a pretrial intervention program and that he will surrender his law enforcement credentials and never work in law enforcement again.

Green was charged after he allegedly engaged in an inappropriate sexual relationship with an informant and made inappropriate sexual contact with a suspect during an arrest, according to indictments.

Green, along with Troy Allen Large, Todd Cox and Darryl Williams, all former officers with the Horry County Police Department, were indicted back in September.

Brad Richardson, Green's attorney, said it is possible the charges will be expunged from his record.
