An incoming freshman football signee with the University of North Carolina has been arrested and charged with felony larceny after allegedly stealing more than $50,000 worth of jewelry and watches from an acquaintance. According to news reports on the story, the 18-year-old returned the items to their owner and turned himself in to the authorities.
Two teenagers have been accused of a two-day crime spree involving a theft crime. Once police became aware of the boys and their alleged connection to area crimes, the charges against them began to mount. Should they be convicted on any of the multiple charges they face, their futures could be significantly impacted. The teenagers came under the suspicion of authorities when North Carolina police were contacted after a disturbance in a local shopping center. Both teens were detained while leaving the area after an alleged theft crime at a Target store.
In North Carolina, theft crime charges are serious business, no matter who you are. A 28-year-old Army soldier is likely realizing this after being accused of breaking into a gun shop. The 82nd Airborne Division paratrooper is now charged with stealing property valued at tens of thousands of dollars.
Being charged with a crime is no jewel. However, all is not lost simply because accusations have been made. While felony charges could indeed carry significant penalties -- for instance, jail time, probation, community service and fines -- a person who has been charged with a crime should never lose hope. This remains true for two young men from Charlotte who are facing several felony charges in connection with recent incidents that may or may not involve them.
