NC: Accountant has intruder's number

Police chase guy who shoplifted 10 bras (?!) from Walmart. Shoplifter loses police when he runs into office building. Female accountant (and bearer of a license to carry) working late hears someone pounding on dead-bolted door at opposite end of office, then door bursts and shoplifter enters. Her attorney (ding-ding!) says she screamed at him to stop, he doesn't, she shoots him once in the neck, he goes down.

At moment shoplifter/intruder has shattered vertebra in neck, can't move arms and legs. His step dad "questions" accountant's actions. :roll:

Attorney's full statement on behalf of his client (the accountant): http://dig.abclocal.go.com/wtvd/docs/We ... tement.pdf

Interesting. This is the first self-defense shooting story I've ever read where the defender really did have an attorney johnny-on-the-spot.

What's the statute of limitations? How long can the DA hold off prosecuting Deondre Branch? It would be cruel to put a quadriplegic in jail. Cruel to the taxpayers footing the bill. No pun intended.
This is my opinion. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

DA determines that the accountant was justified in using deadly force in self-defense.
