Column: D. A. Bell to employ convicted felon as ADA in District 29A-Rutherford & McDowell Counties?

MARION — Persons in the legal and law enforcement community were quite concerned to hear that District Attorney (DA) Ted Bell had plans to hire a convicted felon as Assistant District Attorney to work in McDowell County. Private attorney Michael Kyle McEnery in court recently asked the Judge to skip him when his name came up for assignment from the court-appointed list.  McEnery declared that he was going to be taking a new job and therefore he would not be available.

McEnery has been reported as telling others that he would be joining the District Attorney’s office. One source said the date of employment would be June 2019.

Court records (see below) show a long term pattern for encounters with the law. The most serious charge seems to be breaking and entering and possession of stolen goods while in rehab for heroin addiction.  Other charges include: carrying a concealed weapon, reckless driving, underage drinking, speeding,  hunting out of season, fishing without a license, using a fictitious driver’s license and other offenses as listed below.

“District  Attorney Ted Bell has hired a convicted felon attorney to prosecute cases in McDowell County. How this attorney kept his license I do not know,” as sent to me by a concerned person in the community.
A request for verification and comment from DA Bell was not answered.

From the NC State Bar — Disciplinary Hearing Commission (DHC)

Michael Kyle McEnery – 16 DHC 6
While McEnery, of Raleigh, was in rehabilitation for heroin addiction, he broke into his friend’s house and stole and pawned musical equipment to obtain money to buy drugs. He was suspended by the DHC for five years. The suspension is stayed for five years upon compliance with numerous conditions.

Suspension With All Stayed issued in NC, 2016

updated 

Suspension stayed means the attorney has been suspended, but that the suspension is placed on hold (and ultimately removed) if the attorney complies with certain requirements.
