BOLIVIA, NC (WWAY) – District Attorney Jon David filed a petition with the state court of appeals Thursday challenging Judge Jerry Jolly’s decision to shut down traffic court in Brunswick County.

David is asking the court for a temporary stay against Jolly’s order and has also asked the court to reverse it.

The argument stems from a program call StreetSafe, which helps teens and younger drivers realize how dangerous driving can be if they’re not paying attention. The director of the program gave David $250 last year as a campaign contribution. Jolly contends that donation has resulted in the program being offered at traffic court as a kick-back. David adamantly denies that accusation.

Jolly had a number of mistakes in the original order, including calling StreetSmart a for-profit organization – it is not – and saying the campaign contribution was much larger than it actually was.

David asked Jolly to correct the mistakes as well as apologize for the personal attacks he perceived in the order. Jolly never responded to David’s request.

I am sure from you perspective you really miss Gore. Instead of seeking justice in the murders Gore would have just reduced the charges to driving left of center and all would be done and out of court in less than a day.

So does that make Judge… Read more »

Most of Jollys supporters can’t turn on a computer, let alone write a comment.

Just wondering? Are there no comments for Judge Jolly? Strange. The man has been elected by the citizens for 28 years, but now nobody likes him enough to come forward for him? Strange? No, I’d say suspicious.
