WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — With times as tough for small business as they are now, the offer of free legal advice to get through a problem can be hard to pass up.

Wake Forest University’s law school offers entrepreneurs in the Winston-Salem area a free shot at asking a budding lawyer what to do. The law school said it’s targeting small businesses or nonprofits that otherwise might not be able to afford an attorney.

Third-year law students can draft incorporation documents, employment agreements and purchase agreements with vendors.

Law professor Steve Virgil said many clients have fairly straightforward legal questions that young lawyers can answer.

Three more business-law clinics are scheduled in October and November.

JACKSONVILLE, N.C. — A Camp Lejeune Marine charged with killing his wife in North Carolina said in a 911 call that he had written a suicide note describing what happened.

But multiple media outlets reported that 22-year-old Cody D. Richardson of Wolfeboro, N.H., said in the call Monday that he couldn’t bring himself to commit suicide.

When police responded to Richardson’s call, they found him waiting outside his apartment and his wife, Jessy, dead in the bedroom. The corporal was dismissed from the Marine Corps on
Wednesday, the same day authorities released the 911 call.

Richardson is in jail under a $1 million bond. His next court appearance is scheduled Oct. 13.

A death certificate by the Onslow County medical examiner says Jessy Richardson died of asphyxiation due to strangulation.

Wilmington Police destroy weapons in effort to make streets safer

Wilmington Police took a big step in making city streets a little safer Wednesday. The department destroyed more than 150 weapons.

The weapons were either confiscated, could not be returned to their owners, or were surrendered to be destroyed. Still, officers say they are still fighting an up hill battle.

“The problem isn’t with law abiding citizens, the problem is there is almost a black market if you will of guns on the street,” said Sgt. Thomas Tilman. “Most of these firearms were not purchased by legal means; they were purchased via the black market. A lot of these firearms are substandard firearms.”

Officers also destroyed evidence from drug cases. Plus, the police department gave $50,000 from criminal cases to New Hanover County schools.
