State v. Parker, 233 N.C. App. 577 (Apr. 15, 2014)

In a case where the defendant was charged with embezzling from a school, trial court did not err by admitting evidence that the defendant misappropriated funds from a church to show absence of mistake, opportunity, motive, intent, and/or common plan or scheme. The record supported the trial court’s conclusion of similarity and temporal proximity.
