NC sheriffs express frustration when they refer dangerous teens to detention centers and are denied

Several sheriffs in central North Carolina say they’re frustrated after trying and failing to have teenage offenders placed in juvenile detention centers. The pool of potential juvenile justice offenders grew in late 2019, when the state raised the minimum age at which someone can be charged as a juveniles from 16 to 18. Before Dec. 2019, 16 and 17-year-olds who committed crimes in the state were automatically charged in the adult criminal justice system.

Carr to take Rotary’s high helm

MOORE’S CREEK BATTLEFIELD — As director of Sampson County’s United Way for 20 years, Nancy Carr could be found in the trenches, working to get Sampson hurricane victims needed supplies and life-saving water, championing the causes of the UW’s member agencies and standing shoulder-to-shoulder with UW givers, not only encouraging them to provide financial support but doing so herself. The same could be said of her efforts when she became a member of the Clinton-Sampson Rotary Club 15 years ago. With that same giving spirit, Carr dug in, reading to children in the public schools, picking up roadside litter, serving up shrimp and giving back to Rotary through the Paul Harris Fellowship, Polio Plus and the Cart Fund, which supports Alzheimer’s Research.
