CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - North Carolina voters are deciding whether a convicted felon can run for sheriff. Right now, it's perfectly legal.
A lot of people may be surprised there's nothing in the NC Constitution keeping a convicted felon - once he's served his time - from becoming sheriff.
It's never happened before, but it could.
But sheriffs aren't alone.
There's nothing in the state Constitution to keep an ex-con from becoming a county commissioner, state lawmaker, governor even a judge.
Is it time to change the law?
