Otis Scott’s attorney said this week a recent charge against Scott is the result of an unfortunate misunderstanding he had with a neighbor.

Scott has retained Williamston attorney Lee Cole to represent him in the case resulting from an incident in which Scott removed a mailbox belonging to Daniel Keeler from his (Scott’s) property and placed it on Keeler’s front porch.

Cole recently released the following statement about the incident: “The charge against Mr. Scott is the result of an unfortunate misunderstanding that he had with a neighbor. However, Mr. Scott committed no criminal act, and he is completely innocent of the charge against him . . .”

“. . . We will fight this charge all the way to trial if necessary, and my client is confident that a jury of his peers will exonerate him. Mr. Scott would like to thank all of his friends in the community for their continued prayers and support.”

Scott’s case will probably go to court in several months, Cole said.
