Jon Barber DWI case continued, wine larceny hearing Aug. 11
By Shavonne Potts
SALISBURY ó County Commissioner Jon Barber was granted a continuance Tuesday in his driving while impaired case.
Barberís attorney, David Bingham of Salisbury, requested the case be continued but didnít give any explanation while in court.
Barber was charged in May with driving while impaired, driving left of center and failing to maintain lane control after he wrecked his vehicle. Since Barber refused a breath test at the scene, his driverís license was automatically revoked for 30 days.
In June, Barberís case was continued because he was in rehab. He has since been released from the inpatient rehabilitation program.
This is his second driving while impaired charge. In 2008, Barber pleaded guilty to driving while impaired. Barber admitted in May to a problem with alcohol after he resigned from his teaching job amid allegations he was drunk in a classroom full of students.
Barber is scheduled to appear in court Aug. 11 on charges of misdemeanor larceny stemming from allegations that he stole a bottle of wine from a store in April.
A phone call to David Bingham was not immediately returned. His office indicated Bingham does not comment on pending cases.
