Assault Charges Dismissed Against Lawyer, Wife

Posted January 22, 2008

— Assault charges against a Fayetteville lawyer and his wife were dismissed Tuesday.

Attorney D. Wayne Bray Jr. and his wife, Dollie Bray, were arrested in October after a domestic dispute at their home and were each charged with misdemeanor assault.

A Pitt County judge brought in to hear the case dismissed the charges. It was unclear whether the couple had reconciled.

    If, at the end of the day, this is what you and your partner have done to each other, I beg of you, DO NOT RECONCILE!

    Just having these pictures put on the internet is pretty bad punishment!!! I can't believe the looks of these two!!!

    Well, obviously they both talked back! That was a bad joke, I really don't find DV funny. But, apparently the Courts don't take much consideration for how serious of an issue it is. I have heard it is a progressing thing, and I am sure the next time will be worse. We'll probably read about them again. Hopefully, I am wrong.

    Another Judge who doesn't take DV seriously.

    They're only in the news because they're attorneys - otherwise, this garbage happens every day everywhere.

    Look at their photos. Another classic example of police doing their job by charging them and the courts doing nothing.

    They deserve each other. Can't wait to see the outcome of their next round.
