State v. Barbour, 229 N.C. App. 635 (Sept. 17, 2013)

The trial court did not err by failing to intervene ex mero motu during that State’s closing argument. Even if the prosecutor misstated the evidence, the trial court’s jury instruction cured any defect. The trial court instructed the jury that if their “recollection of the evidence differs from that of the attorneys, you are to rely solely upon your recollection of the evidence.”
