Attn: District Attorney Colin Willoughby
Dear Mr. Willoughby:
Following this page is Brewer’s 2008 interview with Indy Week magazine, where she incorrectly states that North Carolina has no speedy trial statute, and that district court is a trial court, and that she is a trial judge. She has thus been obstructing justice for hundreds of misdemeanor defendants since 2008. She isn’t familiar with N.C. law and is holding illegal jury trials and convicting people in jury trials in district court without probable cause hearings. And unless you take action, she is guaranteed another 4 years of $109,000 salary for continuing to obstruct justice.
As you know, the only pre-trial proceeding allowed in district court is a probable cause hearing and per NCGS 7A-196, there are no criminal jury trials in district court.
Judge Brewer is still oblivious or deliberately ignorant to the fact that probable cause hearings must precede jury trials, and sentencing hearings occur AFTER probable cause hearings.
