Contempt Charge Against Officer May Affect 100 Charlotte Traffic Cases

May 05, 2011  | 

Mecklenburg County, N.C., prosecutors may have to dismiss more than 100 traffic cases, some drunken-driving charges, after a police officer was convicted of criminal contempt.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police Officer Barry Grimes was found guilty Monday of criminal contempt of court for testifying untruthfully during a DWI pretrial hearing in April.

District Judge Sean Smith sentenced Grimes to 30 days in jail and fined him $500.

Grimes, who has worked for CMPD since 2008, remains free while he appeals. He has been suspended without pay pending the outcome of an internal department investigation.

The cost out weighed the benefit. Just reward are now his.
