Brunswick man charged with animal cruelty

Saturday, July 27th, 2013


BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office Animal Protective Services Unit has charged James Miles Butler, 27, of Pine Needle Rd., Longwood, with cruelty to animals.

Butler contacted Animal Protective Services to alert them that something was wrong with his dog, a male lab and pit mix. He indicated that the dog’s head appeared to be swollen. When the APS Officer arrived at the residence, he found the dog to have nylon lead embedded in his neck. The lead appeared to have been around the dog’s neck for a long time. The APS Officer was able to cut the dog free from the lead, under which he discovered wounds.

The dog is now under the care of a Brunswick County veterinarian for treatment of his wounds. The vet has nicknamed him “Red”.

Butler is currently being held at the Brunswick County Detention Facility under a $25,000 secured bond.

Bond denied for NC man deemed danger to public

Saturday, July 27th, 2013

ASHEVILLE, N.C. (AP) – A federal judge has denied bond for a Henderson County man he deemed an “overwhelming” danger to the public after testimony indicated he threatened to shoot his sister, prompting a lockdown at the school where she worked.

The Asheville Citizen-Times reports (http://avlne.ws/13LsBf3) a magistrate ordered Joseph Anthony Sentell to remain in custody pending his trial. Sentell is accused of trying to buy a firearm by lying about his mental health.

A detective testified Thursday in U.S. District Court in Asheville there’s evidence that Sentell threatened to blow up the sheriff’s office so he could become the new sheriff.

Public defender Mary Ellen Coleman argued that Sentell was only convicted of two misdemeanors in connection to the threat against his sister and has never been charged with a violent crime.
