State v. Ward, ___ N.C. App. ___, 2021-NCCOA-274 (Jun. 15, 2021)

A Watauga County trial court lacked jurisdiction to revoke the defendant’s probation imposed in two separate cases in other counties, one probationary sentence imposed in Lincoln County and the other in Catawba County.  As to the Lincoln County case, the State failed to meet its burden to show that the defendant was properly being supervised in Watauga County as there was no evidence that the probation was imposed in Watauga County, that the defendant violated probation imposed in the Lincoln case while she was in Watauga, or that the defendant resided in Watauga County at any relevant time.  The State failed to meet its burden to show the same with respect to the Catawba County case.
