The case of Statesville City Councilman Roy West and Jarrod Phifer will move to district court.
That’s according to West who told WSIC this afternoon that Phifer chose not to mediate during private warrant court today. West is facing two misdemeanor charges following an interaction with Phifer during a closed-door meeting last month.
(AUDIO: Please listen to the report above to hear this quote).
That audio released by the City of Statesville. An Assistant District Attorney told the court in no uncertain terms this morning that victims would likely get more from mediation than they would ever get in district court.
Neither Phifer nor his attorney could be reached for comment.
