Not So Sharpe: District Attorney Intern Arrested for Trying to Sell Copies of Case Documents

Robert Sharpe will at least be familiar with the people prosecuting him in Jacksonville, North Carolina. Sharpe was a volunteer intern with the Onslow County District Attorney’s Office after he tried to sell an undercover agent copies from the Cesar Laurean case. He is facing felony embezzlement and misdemeanor larceny charges.

Laurean, a Marine, is accused of killing Lance Corporal Maria Lauterbach and burying her body in the back yard of his Jacksonville house.

Sharpe was a volunteer who appears to be going to UNC-Wilmington. Only two copies were to be made in the case of critical documents for the prosecutors and the defense counsel. Prosecutors became suspicious when documents began to appear on a newspaper blog. It would be unethical for a journalist to pay for documents, though he may have turned over the documents without payment under a confidentiality agreement.

Sharpe has reportedly attacked the Jacksonville Daily News, which he allegedly gave him confidentiality protection and betrayed him: “I am very disappointed with the Daily News. I was supposed to be a confidential source, they screwed me over and offered no help or assistance afterward. I put my trust in the organization.” This is not exactly the type of thing that a criminal defense should be discussing before a trial. He may indeed have a legitimate gripe with the newspaper, but this statement would be admissible in the trial. A plea seem likely, though a deal with the very prosecutors who you betrayed would be hard to come by.

As for the Daily News, more information would be useful on their role in this matter.

  1. UN Resolution 3379 (1975), “Determines that Zionism is a form of racism and racial discrimination”, with a majority of world nations supporting the Resolution. It took Bush Sr. and US arm-twisting to have that Resolution revoked in 1991 without any change in the Palestinian condition. Bush Jr. had the phrase “Zionism is racism” omitted from the World Conference against Racism 2001 (ironically) in Durban, South Africa. The US left delegation left however, when Israel was equated with Apartheid.

    So it took the esteemed Bush family and US arm-twisting to remove what the majority of countries felt was right. However, what made Zionism racism in 1947 and 1975 did not change in 1991 or 2001. Jimmy Carter knows a great deal more about the topic that either Bush, you or I and he recognized that Israel is an Apartheid State.

    So if you’re a Zionist, you’re a racist, PERIOD.

  2. Again your Rabbi isn’t explaining things to you properly. A Crypto-Jew is a Jew, regardless of what faith he claims to follow.

  3. “I remember that Crypto-Jew Murdoch”

    Tell me how in your canon Murdoch went from being a Jew, to a Crypto-Jew. Seems to me you’ve lost another debate. Have a nice day.

  4. I expect more and more pseudonyms to pop up denouncing alleged anti-Semitism and condemning Islam, but not one denouncing Zionism.

  5. I find the hypocrisy here ALMOST unbelievable.

    When I praise Jews there is NO comment.

    When I wish a Jew a happy holiday, I get attacked for being an anti-Semite (which really is a useless word).

    When I condemn Zionists, for their evil ‘philosophy’ not only does nobody agree, but I’m labeled an anti-Semite.

    The few Jews on this site who label me an anti-Semite are closet Zionists and are rightly ashamed by it; yet try to silence anyone that would dare speak out against that EVIL.

  6. zakimar,

    You often make references to “Crypto-Jews” or similar labels. While I am thankful that your posts have not been censored, I nonetheless wish that you would stick to substantive attacks and avoid your latent (and sometimes patent) anti-Semitic rants. You are frequently thought-provoking, but you are also quite offensive in a manner that is neither intellectually helpful nor challenging.

    Please, do us all a favor, cease the Jew-hating.


  7. What was the price of oil BEFORE Bush went into Iraq? What’s the price of oil going to be if Bush/McCain goes into Iran? I remember that Crypto-Jew Murdoch saying oil would be $20 per barrel if the US went into Iraq. The Republicans are the only ones to blame for the price of oil. They also gave the gasoline companies a blank check to charge whatever they wished. The only blame that can be apportioned to the Democrats is that another Crypto-Jew, Pelosi refuses to impeach the Zionist filth that you call a President.

    Personally, I don’t drive all that much and I drive a German diesel so I think the price of oil is too low. I am willing to pay $5 per liter. That will keep a lot of the US’ excuse for cars off the street, help our environment, and get more money and power to countries like Venezuela and Iran that need to protect themselves for America.

    I guess you’re right, Bush/McCain – 8 more years!

  8. If you want $5.00 a gallon gasoline,vote Democrat:

    ANWR Exploration
    House Republicans: 91% Supported
    House Democrats: 86% Opposed

    House Republicans: 97% Supported
    House Democrats: 78% Opposed

    Oil Shale Exploration
    House Republicans: 90% Supported
    House Democrats: 86% Opposed

    Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Exploration
    House Republicans: 81% Supported
    House Democrats: 83% Opposed

    Refinery Increased Capacity
    House Republicans: 97% Supported
    House Democrats: 96% Opposed


    91% of House Republicans have historically voted to
    increase the production of American-made oil and gas.

    86% of House Democrats have historically voted against
    increasing the production of American-made oil and gas.

    How much did you pay for gas TODAY?

  9. Too bad Cesar Laurean wasn’t a prominent Democrat, in that case Robert Sharpe would have been given a job with the Attorney General’s Office or the Justice Department.
