Father of Former Charlotte, North Carolina Football Star Arrested

Posted by Christopher Shumate | Dec 17, 2012 | 0 Comments

On June 01, 2011, George Thomas Kurney was arrested in Wilson, North Carolina and charged with felony possession of cocaine. Mr. Kurney is a resident of Bailey, NC. He is also a Nash County Sheriff's Deputy. Mr. Kurney works as a chief bailiff for the Sheriff's Department, where he has been employed for ten years.

The arrest has sparked the interest of many local football fans because Mr. Kurney is the father of former Carolina Panthers star Julius Peppers. Mr. Peppers was drafted by the Carolina Panthers in 2002, playing eight years in Charlotte, North Carolina. He now plays for the Chicago Bears under an extremely lucrative contract.

This case has obviously drawn national attention due primarily to the identity of Mr. Kurney's son. Mr. Kurney's employment as a Sheriff's deputy will be an additional factor that may complicate his case. I will be interested to see how this matter develops.

If you know anyone with a pending criminal matter, it is very important that you consult a Charlotte criminal attorney immediately before discussing the case with law enforcement or proceeding to court. I speak with individuals on daily bases that have done irreparable harm to their cases by failing to promptly seek the advice of a qualified lawyer through a free consultation.
