Shea Roseboro is back out on bond again. This time it is $1,000 bond for driving with his license revoked. Last month it was for damaging computers. Meckdeck.com and CrimeinCharlotte.com have tracked his unbelievable criminal career over several years.
Roseboro is one of Charlotte’s most prolific criminals. What makes his story so compelling is that under former DA Peter Gilchrist, we’d expect him to still be wandering the streets no matter what he did until he killed a couple of people, which was par for the course with Gilchrist. But the new DA, Andrew Murray, we were told that repeat criminals would now be targeted for long(er) prison sentences, and that a partnership with the police would help identify them.
So why has Roseboro only done a year in prison TOTAL for all of this (see his record below via crimeincharlotte.com). :
‘Teflon Shea’ Roseboro: One of Charlotte’s Finest Thugs
6/1/2011– It never ends in Mecklenburg County! The ‘revolving door‘ of the justice system is enough to make me spit nails! I was skimming through today’s arrests and I could not believe my eyes when I saw Mr. Shea Roseboro pop up on the screen AGAIN!
I’ve been blogging about Shea Roseboro since Sept 2008 after he shot a 14-year old boy on October Ct. At that time, his arrest record was already a mile long (18 arrests since 8/07) He never spent a day in prison for shooting the boy so….

In April 2010, Shea Roseboro shot a man on Lakewood Ave. He was out of jail being tracked by ‘electronic monitoring’ at the time- so he “cut and ran.” The VCAT Team searched and found Roseboro so back to jail he went… 33 times since he turned 16 years old. I can only imagine his juvenile record!
On May 6, 2011, the Mecklenburg County District Attorney’s Office released the following statement: “Shea Roseboro, 21, pled guilty to interfering with an electronic monitoring device and damaging computers. Roseboro was sentenced to 15-18 months in prison, suspended for 36 months of supervised probation with 120 days in jail by Judge Constangy.”
Can someone please tell me why Shea Roseboro was given a $500 bond and is back out on the streets… after getting arrested again today? Shea Roseboro is 21 years old. He has shot two people, has been arrested in Mecklenburg County 33 times in 5 years and he is STILL walking the streets of Charlotte! Sick yet?
