Rashawn Hines back in jail for attempted murder as prison sentence ends


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- A Wilmington teen once called one of the city's worst offenders landed back in jail as he was set to be released from prison.

Rashawn Hines, 19, was scheduled to released from state prison Friday, but he was booked again at the New Hanover County Jail the same day for two counts of attempted murder, Wilmington Police say.

Police say Hines shot Darryl Terry in the leg and also shot at Tymir Wigfall on June 20, 2013. That's the same night Jeffery Henry, 17, was killed.

Last summer, Wilmington Police Chief Ralph Evangelous called Hines one of the city's worst offenders. Days later he was back behind bars on a probation violation, which earned him a nine-month prison sentence.

Hines is scheduled to be back in court July 31.

Can't be...

...He is such a good guy. He only made a mistake. (barf)

Hold the judge accountable

for such ridiculously short sentences. Why put him in prison at all if he's just going to be on a "short vacation" from his life of crime? Waste of taxpayer's dollars and the court's time.

He continues

to get 3 squares a day; internet; and cable. Although available, his demeanor does not bespeak of someone pursuing educational opportunities.

Well, will the illustrious DA plea bargain this 1 down to a wrist slap and time served. Maybe apologize to him for the inconvenience. The DA on Night Court appears to have a better conviction record.

About time for the friends and relatives to bemoan his innocence and cry out for justice. It may be a racial thing so bring on Reverand Farmer.



The irony!

Well "NOFAITHNLAW", I can only hope that he and his family were getting their hopes up for a nice old BBQ and get together when they slapped him upside the head with this one!

You're user name should be "faithinlaw", because thats what happened - the law got him - again! And I'm guessing it will again, and again, and again. This piece of garbage isn't on his way to being reborn or "corrected" in his society ways, he's a mutt through and through.

Good riddance garbage. Wilmington thanks the legal effort on this piece.


You state that the law got him again and will again and again and again. Hence, no faith in law. They need to put him there to stay instead of giving him more chances. Hes had enough. Other wise I agree with you.
