NC woman accused of crashing car into day care

Thursday, April 18th, 2013

LINCOLNTON, N.C. (AP) – Authorities in Lincoln County have accused a woman with assault with deadly weapon after they say she drove her car into the front door of a day care center where she used to work.

The sheriff’s office said 60-year-old Amy Susan Fier rammed her car into the double metal and glass front doors of the Denver day care as several children stood in the lobby. None of the children were hurt.

Fier had recently been fired from the day care but.

About 30 minutes before Tuesday’s incident, deputies responded to the day care for a disturbance call involving Fier.

Fier is also facing charges of second-degree trespassing, communicating threats and injury to real property. She was released from jail after posting $8,000 bond, and couldn’t be reached for comment Wednesday.

NC advocates for children visit General Assembly

Thursday, April 18th, 2013

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) – Hundreds of advocates for North Carolina children say they came to Raleigh to encourage General Assembly members to invest in education and health care and reduce the number of people tried as adults for low-level crimes.

Doctors, child care operators, parents and law enforcement officials visited legislators on Wednesday and tried to highlight the importance of funding programs that help children. They came following several years of spending cuts under both Democratic and Republican leadership at the legislature.

Henderson Police Chief Keith Sidwell says a commitment to early childhood initiatives like Smart Start will route at-risk youngsters away from crime as adults.

Another group held a news conference urging lawmakers to pass a House bill that would bring 16- and 17-year-olds accused of misdemeanors under the jurisdiction of juvenile courts.
