State v. Stanley, 205 N.C. App. 707 (Jul. 20, 2010)

A conviction for abduction of a child under G.S. 14-41 triggers registration requirements if the offense is committed against a minor and the person committing the offense is not the minor’s parent. The court held that as used in G.S. 14-208.6(1i), the term parent includes only a biological or adoptive parent, not one who “acts as a parent” or is a stepparent.
