State v. Smith, 240 N.C. App. 73 (Mar. 17, 2015)

In this indecent liberties case, the trial court did not err by considering evidence regarding the age of the alleged victims, the temporal proximity of the events, and the defendant’s increasing sexual aggressiveness; making findings of fact based on this evidence; and imposing SBM. Although the trial court could not rely on charges that had been dismissed, the other evidence supported the trial court’s findings, was not part of the STATIC-99 evaluation, and could be considered by the trial court.
