We're hearing from a former employee of the Belmont Police Department who says they have first hand knowledge of the negative culture there. Recent allegations against the police department has caused city officials to launch an outside investigation. We'll let you hear what this former employee says happened at the department in our interview with him. He says it was enough to cause him to quit after 10 years with the department.
We're getting a clearer picture of the events leading to the sudden resignation of former Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools Superintendent Heath Morrison. We'll tell you what the school board received from some of the people who worked with Morrison, that may have been the final straw in Morrison's future at CMS.
Also, former Charlotte Mayor Patrick Cannon did not get the maximum sentence in his bribery case....and now he could actually leave prison early according to our news partners at the Charlotte Observer.
Plus...#OnYourSide - if you or someone you know is in jeopardy of losing a home to foreclosure we're teaming up with two agencies to host a foreclosure help hotline!
