BEAUFORT CO., SC (WTOC) -

The Beaufort County School District Superintendent has admitted to two state ethics violations after his wife was hired for a $90,000-a-year district position.

Under a consent order, the South Carolina Ethics Commission agreed not to pursue a third charge related to a nepotism rule that Jeff Moss altered last year before his wife was hired.

By signing the decree, Moss avoided an administrative hearing which was scheduled for August 17.

He must pay a $2,500 fine and a $500 administrative fee.
