State v. Smith, 225 N.C. App. 471 (Feb. 5, 2013)

In a resist, delay and obstruct case arising out of an incident of indecent exposure, the trial court did not abuse its discretion by denying the defendant’s mistrial motion when an officer testifying for the State indicated that the defendant said he was a convicted sex offender. The trial court sustained the defendant’s objection, granted the defendant’s motion to strike, and gave the jury a curative instruction.
