There will be no criminal charges brought against a Duplin County man who built a huge roadside display with government officials hung in effigy.
District Attorney Dewey Hudson, who is one of those in the display, says they researched the possibility of bringing charges against Lacy Phipps, but have determined the Faison man is not breaking any laws.
The sheriff, a couple of judges and former Governor Mike Easley were also included in the display along Warren Road.
Phipps told reporters he erected the display after his son was murdered and he wanted to bring attention to problems with the way the case was handled.
