45-year-old Wesley Steven White of Charlotte was arrested by Lincoln County Sheriff’s Officers. He’s charged with felony altering a court document.
On November 28, 2023, the Lincoln County District Attorney’s Office requested that the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office investigate the reported alteration of a court document. The document was allegedly altered in the Lincoln County Courthouse on November 27, 2023.
Attorney Wesley White with a Shelby Elder Law Practice was the subject of the investigation. A Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office Detective collected the altered court document along with multiple witness statements and security footage of the incident.
During the investigation it was determined there was probable cause to believe that White unlawfully and intentionally altered a court document that was signed by a District Court Judge. On November 30, 2023, a warrant was issued against White. He turned himself in last Friday (December 1) and received an unsecured bond.
White was not listed as an inmate in Lincoln County as of earlier today (December 5). A District Court appearance is scheduled for December 21.
