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.
