State v. Jones, 241 N.C. App. 132 (May. 19, 2015)

In this robbery case, the trial court did not err by denying the defendant’s mistrial motion made after an officer testified that the defendant told him that he was turning himself in on a failure to appear charge issued in connection with unrelated drug charges. The defendant failed to timely object to the officer’s testimony and any prejudice resulting from it was eliminated by the trial court’s curative instruction and the defendant’s own trial testimony.
