Today the defendant charged with Charles Wilson
's misdemeanor death by motor vehicle had his first setting. His attorneys asked for a continuance and were granted one until October 3, 9am, when the next hearing is scheduled.
The family of Charles Wilson attended and had t-shirts printed up featuring pictures of Charles and honoring his memory. His mother, Brenda Sue, continues to be in visible grief, as the rest of the family tries to put on as strong a face as possible.
I attended the hearing on behalf of the family, and so did my co-counsel for this matter, Chris Nichols
, whose help has proved invaluable as we continue to investigate the facts and circumstances surrounding Charles Wilson's tragic death
on July 10th of this year. Chris has great experience in handling wrongful death actions in this state, and he has already aided us immensely in our work thus far. For those readers who practice law in North Carolina, Chris also maintains a blog on North Carolina trial law topics found here
We didn't have much to say in court as the Estate isn't a party to the criminal proceeding, however we did speak with the press afterwards. A recap of that conversation is on the flip.
