Four jurors dismissed in Army general sex case

FORT BRAGG, NC (AP) — Four jurors seated for the court-martial of a U.S. Army general facing sexual misconduct charges have been dismissed.

Col. James Pohl told the court Thursday that because the jurors knew a potential witness in the case, they could be deemed biased. That means four new jurors will have to be found for the Sept. 30 trial of Brig. Gen. Jeffrey Sinclair.

A minimum of five jurors is needed.

Eight potential jurors already have been excused because they either knew Sinclair, other jurors or witnesses in the case.

Sinclair has pleaded not guilty to eight charges that include forcible sodomy, indecent acts, violating orders and adultery.

State officials may seek to recoup NC center funds

Friday, July 19th, 2013

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) – Gov. Pat McCrory’s administration says it’s suspended giving state money to the North Carolina Rural Economic Development Center and directed center officials to halt distributing state funds to grant recipients.

State Budget Director Art Pope also told N.C. Rural Center leaders Thursday the state was considering recouping potentially more than $100 million held by the center in the light of a stinging state audit issued the day before. Center President Billy Ray Hall announced his retirement Thursday.

Pope wrote separately to legislators who are determining how much money to give to the center in the two-year budget being negotiated. He says it appears the center may have tried to conceal the audit until after the final budget was completed.

Center officials didn’t return phone calls seeking comment.
