That's interesting, because I've worked for 3 different Fortune 500 companies, and every time I've interviewed FIRST, and then, if they wanted to hire me, that's when they did the background checks. So, major, successful businesses in their actual hiring practices versus guy on the internet saying it should be done differently.. Which to believe, which to believe.....

Interview time is much more costly than a criminal background check. Successful people know that.

I am much more cynical than I am naive. There is such a thing as "contempt" which is what should be used here. Disturbances by cell phone users happens all across the planet - no reason why court rooms should be exempt.

Preliminary hearing set for accused murderer Carter

1 year, 6 months ago by Bob Gough

Defendant repeatedly said he didn't understand charges

Judge Robert Adrian set a preliminary hearing for January 23 in the case of a man charged with first degree murder in last week's Downtown fatal shooting.

Vincent B. Carter, 44, appeared before Adrian this morning in Adams County Circuit Court. Wearing the usual orange and white striped jumpsuit and orange flip-flops, Carter was cuffed at the wrists and ankles.

Carter was filling out paperwork for a public defender before the judge opened the session, saying he had no money for a private attorney and on the section of the form where you list your incomed, Carter said "I got no income. I'm putting zero."

Adrian read that Carter was being charged with first degree murder and that on January 3 he shot Terry Williams with a semi-automatic pistol, knowing it would create bodily harm. Carter allegedly shot Williams on Thursday afternoon. He was arrested Friday morning in the Northwest section of Quincy.

Multiple times, Carter interrupted Adrian, saying "I don't understand that." Adrian then read the charges again, but Carter continued the interruptions, saying "I didn't know that", "My mind is a blank" and "I don't understand any of this."

Carter eventually acknowledged he was being charged with first degree murder, although he repeated that he didn't understand why he was being charged.

Carter told Adrian he needed a public defender.

"I haven't been able to get ahold of my people," Carter said.

Chief Public Defender Holly Henze will represent Carter.

Carter remains in the Adams County Jail on $1 million bond.
