Since you guys will probably hear about it soon enough, Wake County school board vice chairwoman Debra Goldman's son was arrested on a shoplifting charge.
As noted in this online article by Thomas Goldsmith, Matthew Goldman, 21, was arrested on Feb. 4 on a felony larceny charge for allegedly disabling an anti-theft device to steal an Xbox 360 Kinect at a Target store in Raleigh. The charge was reduced today to misdemeanor larceny as part of an agreement between Goldman's attorney and prosecutors.
Wake County Clerk of Superior Court Lorrin Freeman said this kind of agreement to reduce charges was typical of the disposition of similar cases. Goldman was placed in a first offender program.
In case you're wondering why this is news, the N&O reports on the arrests of children of elected officials. Although Goldman gave a different address when he was arrested, he's still registered to vote at his mother's address.
