Some people in North Carolina seem to choose a life of lawlessness regardless of the impact to their own lives or others. Their actions can cause detrimental effects to others as well as themselves, and they may eventually face criminal charges related to their activities. One man in the state recently found that out the hard way, as he was arrested and charged with a number of serious felony offenses.
The man was described as 33 years old, presumably from Wilmington. The New Hanover County Sherriff’s Office had apparently been looking for him, and they received word from the Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department that the individual may be in Wilmington or the surrounding areas. The New Hanover County Sherriff Office’s Emergency Response Team responded to a location a 429 Taylor Street, where they apprehended the man.
Hw was arrested and charged with 27 total felony offenses. The charges included 18 counts of discharging a weapon into an occupied dwelling, 2 counts of possession of a firearm by a felon, and others. He is being held on a secured bond of $860,000.
Right to defense
Facing felony charges is a serious matter, especially if the person is already a convicted felon. Convictions on new charges may mean considerable time behind bar along with substantial fines and other penalties. Because of all that is at stake, the suspect will want to work closely with an experienced criminal defense attorney in North Carolina to help him fight the charges against him and increase his chances for a successful outcome.
