Be careful who you argue with. They might pull a gun and shoot you.
So, who was this gun toting killer? Was he another poster boy for the anti-gunner’s “Concealed Carry Killers” scare study?
He was just another felon.
So how is it that a person gets convicted of two serious felonies, Class G Felony “Common Law Robbery” and Class E Felony “Robbery with a Dangerous Weapon” stemming from two separate incidents on two different days, yet he only gets a suspended sentence? The NC Structured Sentencing guide (PDF) makes it pretty clear that a Class E Felony, with no prior convictions, gets you 15-20 months of prison, minimum. The “presumptive” range is 20-25 months. And that doesn’t include the second crime, which should get you 10-13 months.
If I was a family member of the victim I’d be screaming bloody murder about how a criminal already convicted of two very serious felonies was never given any jail time.
