Robbery charges withdrawn

NEW CASTLE — Charges against Justin Anthony Barry, who was accused in a robbery, have been withdrawn.

New Castle police had arrested Barry, 25, of Apt. F, 1214 Highland Ave., earlier this month and charged him with robbery, aggravated assault, terroristic threats, recklessly endangering another person, theft and receiving stolen property.

According to information from the Lawrence County District Attorney’s office, all charges were withdrawn because the alleged victim did not show up to testify at Barry’s preliminary hearing last week.

Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal signed “unprecedented” legislation yesterday to expand gun rights in his state. Good idea?

Yes. Expanding the scope of where people can carry guns can help halt violent crimes and make those places safer.
No. Carrying guns into bars and schools is NEVER a good idea. I think it will lead to more violence.
Not sure, but I don’t plan to visit Georgia any time soon.
