Judge Drops Child's Felony Charges
by Kathryn Searles

NEWTON, N.C.-- An 8-year-old boy in Catawba County was in court Friday on felony charges.

Eight-year-old Sam Grant was in Catawba County District Court on charges of discharging a firearm into an occupied vehicle.  His parents say he was shooting at an abandoned building back in February but the child managed to hit two cars with people inside.

The judge dismissed Sam's case.

Sam's father, Johnny Robbins, says Sam was shaking in fear as he waited for his name to be called.
