State v. China, ___ N.C. App. ___, 797 S.E.2d 324 (Feb. 21, 2017)

rev’d in part on other grounds, 370 N.C. 627 (Apr. 6, 2018)

The defendant failed to preserve for appellate review a challenge to the admission of evidence at trial concerning the defendant’s previous incarceration. Although the defendant objected to the admission of the evidence during a hearing outside of the jury’s presence, he did not subsequently object when the evidence was actually introduced at trial. Thus the defendant failed to preserve for appellate review the trial court’s decision to admit this evidence.
