Stokes County sheriff's deputies arrested the president of the local NAACP chapter on child sex and firearms charges Monday.
CBS affiliate WFMY reports that Larry Lash, 54, of Walnut Cove, was charged with six counts of statutory rape and two counts of sex offense and first-degree sex offense, among other sex charges.
Sheriff Mike Joyce told WFMY that there were three victims, including two under 16-years-old and that the alleged sex acts took place at Lash's home over a period of time.Investigators found five guns and ammunition at Lash's house when they arrested him, leading to a charge of possession of a firearm by a felon. According to state Department of Correction records, Lash was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in 1974 and assault by pointing a gun and discharging a firearm into property in 1978.
I'm not going to hold a guy accountable for a crime he committed and did jail time for twenty years ago, but it does call into question his mental status. And the fact that the media doesn't seem to want to report on this story means that there's a political angle to it.
Now add on the fact that the NAACP is one of the most partisan, plantation-guarding groups out there, and that they always, ALWAYS go for the Democrat.... there shouldn't be any doubt as to why the media doesn't want to carry the story.
