Wheeler versus Caulder-WoFF Trespassing Case Dismissed

RUTHERFORDTON —”The Wheeler for NC” campaign case filed in small claims court against Jayne Caulder over an alleged trespassing case at the Word of Faith Fellowship (WoFF) church has been dismissed.

Wheeler, appearing pro se, was suing for the $4500 in legal fees spend to defend him, Wayne Guffey, and John Huddle against the trespassing charges initiated by Caulder when the three refused to leave the WoFF premises at her request. Wheeler in his arguments insisted he was invited to meet with Pastor Jane Whaley and argued it was malicious prosecution by Calder.

“North Carolina is my home and I want to help folks in Rutherford County. I will keep fighting against any injustice I see. But maybe next time with a little more Southern sensibility,” said former Senate candidate David Wheeler. Wheeler as a candidate felt obligated to pursue repayment. “

Attorney Josh Farmer represented Caulder and Woff. After the dismissal of the trespassing care, Farmer said, “The decision of the court to dismiss this case respected and appreciated. The world  where houses of worship are increasingly the target of attacks, clear enforcement of trespassing statues is needed now more than ever.”

Months earlier, District Attorney Ted Bell recused himself from prosecuting the trespassing case citing derogatory comments made about him by Wheeler during the campaign and referred the case to the Attorney General’s office. Upon reviewing the Facebook Live video and other evidence, the Attorney General’s office declined to prosecute.
