LOWELL, N. C. – Authorities say a former police officer serving prison time for the impregnation of a then 14-year-old girl in North Carolina has violated any of the restrictions set by his plea agreement by trying to contact her.
The Gaston Gazette reports 52-year-old James “Paul” Blair was sentenced to 12 years in prison after pleading guilty to rape of a child in March. The victim’s mother, Karen Vaughn, says Blair sent a letter to a family member who is entitled to the teenager.
Vaughn says that her daughter is sick of these attempts and recorded in the hospital.
Department of Public Safety officials confirmed the violation. Gaston County District Attorney John Bell says that it is up to corrections officials to determine discipline.
The maximum term in the range of the former Lowell prosecutor-plea agreement was for almost 20 years.
