    colliedave where did you get your info? His name is Willam not William. I checked the NCDOC site as well, while there is a William, there is not a Willam. Or did WRAL just spell it wrong?

    The guy has a 20 year record of crime. As A juvenile he was sentenced as a habitual offender. What can be done about such an individual? If he was to have this sort of record in an Islamic country, I would be minus his hands.

    Clearly, he seems to prefer the prison lifestyle. Need to send him to Caladonia Farms where the life is far from cushy.

    "In each instance, some items were stolen and some left behind."

    Really? Someone needs a journalism class.
