Charleston Police are searching for twenty-two year old Eric A. Wigfall in reference to a shooting in West Ashley. Eric is no stranger to firearms and assault charges.
In February of 2007 Wigfall was charged with Pointing & Presenting a Firearm, Assault & Battery of a High and Aggravated Nature and Possession of a Weapon During a Crime of Violence. The pointing and presenting was dismissed by the solicitor. The charge of weapon possession was dismissed at the preliminary hearing with a notation that there was no probable cause. Wigfall pled guilty to the ABHAN charge and was sentenced under the Youthful Offenders Act to a term not to exceed six years, suspended on three years of probation.
While out on bond on the above charges Wigfall was charged with Possession of a Weapon During a Crime of Violence and Armed Robbery. Both charges were dismissed because the victim was so afraid of Wigfall he moved out of state and refused to cooperate with the prosecution.
Five years have passed, but it appears nothing has changed.
