Charges against Bullard have been dismissed

Posted by Debra Worley - email

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Charges against a well-known insurance agent in Wilmington have been dismissed, according to his attorney.

James Don Bullard was arrested in October, accused of distributing ecstasy in the area.  He was charged with possession with intent to manufacture, sell, and deliver ecstasy and destroying evidence.

According to Bullard's attorney, Dennis H. Sullivan, those charges have been dismissed, saying a lab proved a seized tablet that was not a drug.

Sullivan released the following statement:

The charges against James Don Bullard arising out of the search of his home by law enforcement officers on September 29, 2009 have been dismissed. The single tablet that was seized during that raid has been analyzed by a laboratory and determined not to be a controlled substance. After a thorough investigation of all of the facts and circumstances surrounding this investigation, it has been determined that there was no crime committed which could sustain these charges.

Mr. Bullard and I are appreciative of the District Attorney's office taking this step immediately upon being notified of the laboratory's findings. Don has always had confidence in the legal process.

He is ready to put this incident behind him and move forward with his life. Don would like to thank all of the people that have supported him during this investigation. He looks forward to continuing his long history of service to his clients and our community.
