Weapons Crimes Archives

NC State leading rusher is sidelined due to assault arrest

It's odd the way some businesses and organizations suspend an employee from his or her job immediately upon knowing of an individual's arrest by police. This is done without any court determination of criminal wrongdoing. A North Carolina State running back was charged on June 6 with misdemeanor criminal assault on a female and was suspended immediately.

Man arrested on sexual assault charges concerning campus attack

It's always good to remember that an accused is innocent unless proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. Modern forensic science has exposed hundreds if not thousands of false arrests and incarcerations in the country in recent years. One recent arrest at North Carolina State University of a 21-year-old man for sexual assault offenses is in some ways exemplary of why an arrest should not be taken as proof of anything. Instead, the prosecution must prove each and every element of the crime beyond a reasonable doubt in order to obtain a conviction.

Student arrested for potential violent crime and weapons charges

College days used to be considered the easy times of a person's life. However, the high incidence of weapons possession and violence at educational venues in recent years raises deep concerns as to the root causes of these problems. In North Carolina, another arrest was made on a college campus recently for weapons charges associated with reported behavior that has the high potential for violent crime.

Violent crime suspect held in home invasion and murder charge

When the police arrest someone on a homicide charge for a recent event to which there were no witnesses, it's reasonable to question the details and validity of the arrest. That may be the situation developing in the recent violent crime arrest of a 21-year-old man as a suspect in the murder of a 42-year-old North Carolina man in his home a few days earlier. Charlotte-Mecklenburg police announced that they arrested the man without incident.

Man wrongly convicted of first-degree murder is released

In a country professing to guarantee extensive civil rights to criminal defendants, there's no shortage of innocent individuals being sent to prison or to their death. In North Carolina, another man has been released and found to have had nothing to do with a murder for which he was convicted and imprisoned for 17 years. This is the latest in a string of such discoveries in North Carolina.

Man arrested in domestic violence outburst also hurts deputy

Violence is a self-perpetuating emotional explosion that is obviously difficult for most people to control. Once it triggers, it's liable to attack whatever comes in its path. That's what apparently happened in a North Carolina community recently when a domestic violence case also turned into an assault against a deputy sheriff. A 50-year-old man from Hope Mills was arrested and charged with assault by strangulation, second-degree kidnapping and assault on a female.

North Carolina man charged with assault after domestic incident

A North Carolina man who reportedly found his wife with another man is now facing criminal charges. He is accused of assault, property damage and other actions after the incident. Authorities believe that the man arrived at a house and found his wife inside, apparently drinking with one of the male occupants. Roommates who were home at the time contacted authorities and claimed that the man forcibly entered the residence.

2 men face violent crime charges after Wilmington standoff

A gunfire exchange with Wilmington police has led to two men facing criminal charges. The altercation began when officers pulled the man's vehicle over. Information received led them to believe the man had a passenger inside wanted on violent crime charges. Once officers approached the vehicle, the passenger exited the vehicle and fled the scene.

Violent crime proceedings in North Carolina delayed

Four people facing several violent crime charges in North Carolina have had their cases continued. They are all charged with murder after the death of a local college student. If a conviction is obtained, three may receive the death penalty. The other individual accused of the violent crime is a minor, and he could face up to life imprisonment without the possibility of parole, if convicted.

Man faces violent crime charges in North Carolina

A North Carolina man is facing violent crime charges after an incident involving a woman. Details surrounding the incident are few, and the relationship between the man and the victim was not reported. He has been arrested on violent crime charges and has a bond of over $1,000,000.
