What the location of all the trepass arrests for Thompkins in recent years? A CMS facility? The Transit Center?

More importantly... WHY NO CONVICTIONS?

Guy is booked into the jail 10 times in the past 3 yrs. -- NO CONVICTIONS.

Anon @ 3:09: The DOC record is not showing any conviction under either name. (Thompkins/Tompkins) An arrest is not a conviction.

Here is what I came up with-
Thompkins, 20, has 11 arrests in Mecklenburg County since July of 2008-- including 2 robbery arrests in 2009. He has future court dates for trespassing, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

The DOC website only shows defendants who have been sent to state prison or placed on supervised probation. These convictions are the lowest class misds in NC and resulted in either local jail time or unsupervised probation and are therefore not showing up on the DOC offender search. He has been convicted at least five times.
