Tuesday, December 20th, 2011

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A sheriff’s deputy escorted New Hanover County Commissioner Brian Berger from this morning’s DSS Board meeting, after Berger tried to take a seat at the board table. The DSS Board Chair asked that Berger be removed. Instead of sitting in the audience, Berger decided to leave. As he left, Berger said by law he’s still on the board.

After officially being dropped from the board by in a 4-0 vote yesterday by the other New Hanover County Commissioners, Berger said he would show up anyway and take his seat at the table. Berger was early to the meeting and took a seat at the table. DSS staff and a deputy talked to him before the meeting started.

The County Commission voted Vice Chairman Jonathan Barfield onto the board in Berger’s place. He said at Monday’s commission meeting he was going to the meeting and taking a sheriff’s deputy with him in case things got out of control.

Barfield was sworn in as a member of the DSS Board at this morning’s meeting.

Brothers in alleged NC terror ring face sentencing

Tuesday, December 20th, 2011

NEW BERN, NC (AP) — Two North Carolina men are about to learn their sentences after pleading guilty to their roles in a home-grown terror cell that prosecutors say plotted attacks under their father’s leadership.

Dylan Boyd and Zakariya Boyd are scheduled for sentencing Tuesday in federal court in New Bern. Defense attorneys blame their involvement on their father Daniel Boyd and his radical Muslim views.

Prosecutors say the brothers were part of a group of eight men who raised money, stockpiled weapons and trained in preparation for jihadist attacks against American military targets and others they considered enemies of Islam.

Twenty-two-year-old Zak and 25-year-old Dylan Boyd each pleaded guilty to conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists, which carries a maximum of 15 years in prison. Both cooperated with prosecutors and expect lesser sentences.
