DA: “She is to be commended for her bravery”

Thursday, July 31st, 2014

BURGAW, NC (WWAY) – After more than two years in the court system, a domestic sexual abuse case came to a close Thursday.

A Burgaw man pleaded guilty in Pender County Superior Court to sex and weapons charges stemming from an April 14, 2012, incident at his house on Highway 52 East. All this is according to a news release from District Attorney Ben David.

Judge Doug Parsons sentenced Arthur Jay Goulette, 45, to eight to 15 years in the North Carolina Department of Adult Corrections. Goulette will also have to register as a sex offender for 30 years, pay $8,600 in court costs, and stay away from the victim.

The victim, Goulette’s girlfriend, showed up at the Pender Medical Center with several injuries, including bruising and a broken nose. She said Goulette had assaulted her.
While investigating, Pender County deputies found a shotgun in his bedroom. Goulette was prohibited from possessing a firearm after a 2004 robbery conviction in New Hanover County. On April 19, 2012, he was arrested and charged with second degree sexual offense and felon in possession of a firearm.

“Today’s plea would not have resulted in the defendant’s years of incarceration and decades on the sex offender registry without a victim coming forward to report her sexual abuse. She is to be commended for her bravery,” District Attorney Ben David said.

This case was continued for more than two years because the defendant was originally found incompetent to stand trial due to mental incapacity. He was treated until he was well enough to enter Thursday’s plea.

RALEIGH, NC (WWAY) — Insurance Commissioner Wayne Goodwin announced the arrest of Samuel James Spicer, 61, and Aletha Jinwright Spicer, 46, of Castle Hayne Thursday.

Department of Insurance criminal investigators said that the Spicers provided false and misleading information to CNA Insurance on Aug. 9, 2010, to support an injury claim against Carolina Restaurant Group on behalf of their 11-year-old son.

The Spicers turned themselves in to Pender County authorities on July 26. They were each charged with one count of insurance fraud and attempting to obtain property by false pretense, and placed under a $10,000 bond.
