WILMINGTON, NC – It seems that planning to intimidate members of the county School Board and its schools superintendent, Dr. Charles Foust—not only at future board meetings but also at their homes and businesses—is not enough for charges to be filed in New Hanover County. So says the NHC District Attorney’s Office.
Dr. Foust and NHC School Board members filed complaints last month against two attendees who allegedly plotted on Facebook to make life difficult for the school officials. After the NHC Sheriff’s Dept. investigated and submitted a report to the DA, the decision was made that more would have to happen in order for the law to step in.
There were no specifics about what additional activities—beyond planning intimidation and harassment of public officials—would be considered sufficient to bring charges.
