GASTONIA, N.C. - In an update to a story we first brought you last year, the North Carolina State Bar has suspended the law license of a former Gaston County prosecutor.
It comes almost exactly one year after James "Brandon" Graham was arrested on drug charges.
He was pulled over by a Waxhaw Police officer, who allegedly saw a loaded syringe in his passenger seat. Police said Graham consented to a search, which led to the discovery of six syringes filled with heroin and three more with methamphetamine.
According to our news partners at The Gaston Gazette, Graham's law license was suspended after he pleaded guilty to methamphetamine possession in a Union County court in October. That case, however, is not over and Graham is set to return to court May 15.
