    Wonder if LE thought he was planning to leave regardless...
    Whatever I say...It's only my opinion.

    I find the timing interesting for sure. This has to have been known about by LE for some time and yet the charges fall immediately after AB announces through his attorney that he hopes to head for Australia.

    Interesting indeed.

    I'm also quite sure LE knew about this months ago. I thought he was already out on bond for other charges, and normally one's passport is confiscated, so I'm still at a loss how he could've returned to Australia anyway. MOO


    eta - Just saw on another thread he supposedly paid off the checks. Never mind!

    BBM or someone who feels kindly toward him. I think the passport was still in LE custody a) it was seized as evidence during the search warrant and b) I think Australia wanted custody of him after the states were done with him because of the leaving the leaving Australia unauthorized thing. I cannot recall if Australia was unhappy with the illegal marriage situation or the paperwork for Zahra's exit from Australia being falsified.

    Does anyone else remember exactly what Australia said in regards to the illegal alien thing?

    I don't get it:

    Police said the charges filed against Adam Baker on Tuesday are related to obtaining services from Duke Energy.

    So was he trying to get gas and electric service by using another name? Seems like a petty charge to me, but maybe it's because I'm not seeing the big picture here.

    MOO

    It appears before the new charges were filed his attorney was hopeful the other matter would be resolved soon........and he would have his passport returned. MOO

    In NC Identity Theft is a Class G or F felony. (difference between the two is if it is one or more persons). Obtaining property by false pretenses is a Class H felony. G & F carry more time (about 16 months for a level 1 offender) and H carries 6 months for the same level.

    Yes, it's not a murder charge but a conviction of a felony carries a lot of weight for the rest of a persons life. For instance in the USA (states have different rights) a felon can not vote, carry a gun or run for office, serve on a jury and hold some occupations. It's very difficult to get a job at all after being convicted. Of course in Australia it might be different if AB goes back there.

    In AB's case I believe this is a stall tactic. It seems it's already caused a cancellation of the meeting to possibly restore his passport next Tuesday. For me this is a good thing in his case. l

    I have been wondering since the rental house was ruined and the bosses truck ruined
    with gasoline, could AB be responsible for any of that also?
    More charges coming? Higher bail? flight risk?
    Is he in the same jail as EB wife???

    So, he used someone else's name to open utility accounts at their house? I really have to wonder why they are charging him with these crimes and nothing (yet) related to Zahra.
