State v. Jefferies, 243 N.C. App. 455 (Oct. 6, 2015)

The court held, in this burning of personal property case, that although some of the prosecutor’s comments regarding the credibility of certain witness testimony during closing arguments may have been objectionable, they did not rise to the level of requiring the trial court to intervene ex mero motu. The court noted as objectionable the prosecutor’s statement that the victim’s testimony was “extraordinarily credible.”
