BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) — Wednesday was the first session of traffic court since Judge Jerry Jolly’s decision to halt the program.
There were 134 cases heard today, which is a far cry from the 1,000 cases they would do on a normal traffic court day, according to Brunswick County District Attorney Jon David’s office.
There wasn’t enough time since the August ruling for law enforcement officers to take advantage of the program.
The next traffic court date in Brunswick County has been set for 8:30 a.m. on Sept. 21.
Columbus County will have its first session on Sept. 27 and no date has been set yet for Bladen County.
