Merriweather says the issue arose as his office struggled to prioritize cases of a more serious nature. The district attorney’s office entered into a process with the North Carolina Courts Administrative Office (AOC) last month to dismiss a number of low-priority traffic and misdemeanor cases, allowing prosecutors to focus their resources on more serious trafficking and crime cases.
