“This is a very expensive business today”

Cabarrus County's overall crime rate jumped by more than 5 percent last year, outpacing Mecklenburg County's rate and putting Cabarrus at a 10-year high, state statistics released last week show.

Cabarrus County Sheriff Brad Riley said the area's growth is partly responsible for the increase, but said Cabarrus fared better than other counties of similar size, including Buncombe and Union.

The county's top law enforcement officials also said the overall number of crimes is relatively low, and they will need more resources to keep it that way. Read more

I watched a man plead guilty to nr 2 dwi in five years be sentenced to 12 months unsupervised probation, and fined 250 dollars, what a joke.
i watched my ex wife convicted of dwi nr five, 2 in six weeks, while on revolked license, three in 3 years, was supose to take her vehicle, they didn't. and her license was revolked for 7 yrs already, she got 60 days, let her serve 30 days and then 15 week ends, while serving week ends was arrested for felony posession of drugs in jail, that got her a whole 16 hrs of community service,. Its all aout how much money you are willing to give your attorney to put in the judges pocket.
