BOLIVIA, NC (NEWS RELEASE FROM DISTRICT ATTORNEY JON DAVID’S OFFICE) — Last week Judge Jerry Jolly and I met to discuss implementation of the new statewide law requiring that infraction courts be put in place no later than October 1, 2011.

Together we were able to come to a consensus regarding the best way to reintegrate this worthy program back into our criminal justice system.

In the near future, Judge Jolly and I have agreed to meet with leaders in Columbus and Bladen to discuss traffic court in their counties.

I am encouraged by the fact that we were able to work well together on this matter and I look forward to working with Judge Jolly in the future on other issues of mutual concern.

Because our case is still pending in the Supreme Court, I am limiting my comments about Judge Jolly’s Administrative Order of April 15, 2011.

Again, I am pleased that Judge Jolly and I were able to come to an agreement which will benefit both the court system and the community at large.

    Did they actually, physically hug each other? Other media sources are not reporting it if they did.

    Or, is it possible that WWAY is taking liberal license with a catchy header at the expense of accurate reporting?

    Glad to hear that these gentleman were able to reach an agreement. Wonder what Ola thinks?

    It does not matter what kind of agreement thay come to. The speeders and drunk drivers will get away with it in brunswick county. This is the only county in the state where they all walk. The lawyers keep putting the case off until it gets dropped which is bull crap. There have been several people who have had 5 DUI’S and still drive one just got another one last month where he was involved in a hit and run with injuries he will walk too. they need to crack down on them.
