During the Dec. 14, session of Superior Court in Brunswick County former Shallotte Police Detective Eric Proctor King plead guilty to one count of making false statements on an application for insurance during an incident that occurred on Jan. 27, 2011.
King appeared in front of Honorable Greg Bell, a Superior Court Judge from Robeson County, and was sentenced to a term of 45 days. That sentence was then suspended by the court and King was placed on unsupervised probation for a term of 18 months.
King was ordered to pay a court cost and was fined $500 by the court. As a condition of probation the court ordered that King report his conviction to the North Carolina Training and Standards Commission within 30 days. As an additional special condition of probation King was ordered not to be employed as a law enforcement officer, nor seek employment as a law enforcement officer in the State of North Carolina for a period of 24 months. King was also ordered to refrain from attempting to reinstate or renew his law enforcement certification during his term of probation.
King then agreed to execute a release of all potential claims against the Town of Shallotte, arising out of this incident and his subsequent termination by the town. King also agreed to sign mutual releases against GMAC Personal Lines Insurance Group, Integon National Insurance Company, Leah and Associates Insurance Agency, and the NC Dept. of Insurance.
The District Attorney’s office would like to thank everyone who assisted in the prosecution and investigation of this officer.
