Tabor City man back on retrial for 2014 conviction of sexual assault

TABOR CITY, NC (WWAY) — A Tabor City man is back on trial for the attempted rape and kidnapping of child.

In 2014, 57-year-old Calvin Watts was convicted of sexually assaulting an 11-year-old child in his home.

Watts appealed the ruling.

The State Court of Appeals granted Watts a new trial after determining the trial court should not have admitted evidence of a prior sexual assault.

His trial continues this week in Columbus County.
