CRIMINAL CHARGES DROPPED VS. SHINN, CIVIL ACTION POSSIBLE
Published November 24, 1997
Hornets Owner GEORGE SHINN "won't face criminal charges," but lawyers for the woman who accused him of sexual misconduct vowed" press the case in civil court, according to Chandler, Dube, & Wright of the CHARLOTTE OBSERVER. York County Solicitor Tommy Pope "stressed" that Shinn's influence in the community "played no role in his decision," and that the ten week delay in deciding to press charges was not "unusually long" (CHAR. OBSERVER, 11/22).
