State v. Morrow, 200 N.C. App. 123 (Oct. 6, 2009)

aff’d, 364 N.C. 424 (Oct. 8, 2010)

In determining whether the defendant requires the highest possible level of supervision and monitoring, the trial court may consider any evidence relevant to the defendant’s risk and is not limited to the DOC’s risk assessment. Because evidence supporting a finding of high risk was presented in a probation revocation hearing held the same day (the defendant admitted that he failed to attend several sexual abuse treatment program sessions), the court remanded for an evidentiary hearing as to the defendant’s risk.
