State v. Porter, ___ N.C .App. ___, 2022-NCCOA-166 (Mar. 15, 2022)

In an assault on a female case, the State conceded that the trial court erred by sentencing the defendant to 24 months of supervised probation without making a specific finding, as required by G.S. 15A-1343.2(d), that a probationary period longer than 18 months was necessary.  The court remanded the case for resentencing.
