Former News Photographer Guilty Of Tipping Off Police Raid

A former news photographer, accused of tipping off a police raid, was found guilty today in an Onslow County courtroom.

Eugene Shelton was working for WCTI-TV when he was arrested back in May. He was accused of leaking information about the impending raid to a manager of Club Mickeys.

Shelton and other members of the media were invited to go along with deputies on the raid.

A district court judge sentenced him to pay a $250 fine, plus $121 in court costs. Shelton is also ordered to perform 72 hours in community service.

He no longer works for Channel 12.
