Readers respond to and converse on our July 21 report on former Charlotte restaurant owner K.C. Terry (goqnotes-launch2.newspackstaging.com/30421/), recently arrested for theft in Asheville and facing several charges relating to the solicitation and prostitution of teenagers:

This guy should have just gone to Rub Maps if he really wanted some action. That site is like the Yelp of massage parlors.

I don’t think Georgetown “railroading” him had as much to do with him being gay as it did with him being a known pedophile.

In response to Raccoonman:

You are correct. He is simply trying to pass the blame like always. This guy is famous for rape. Everybody knows him in Charlotte NC. He is trying to push the ostrasized homosexual angle in Ashville also. He isnt homosexual. He is a republican redneck rascist who used the charlotte gay scene to camouflage his activity… it didnt work but worked enough for him to continue… now he is just running from his sick past.

So what happened with the smoker?

Maybe this article should have been titled “Former Openly Gay Charlotte restauranteur speaks about past charges. He’s charged with doing a bunch of stuff to minors who may/ may not have been underaged. He may have stolen a smoker. And he posted bail a week ago for something … On second thought we’ll get back to you when we can string some facts together. It’ll be great!”

In response to Confused:

You would probably have to wait for the court case to resolve before hearing about the smoker. Isnt it a federal charge to go across state lines with stolen property worth over 1,000? SBI has to get the results back before they can drag him into a courtroom in SC. That takes a long time because of out of state servers being tapped. In the mean while we are going to keep talking about him. Be glad you aren’t in Charlotte! They are talking about him big time around these parts. The charges against him include “underage” activity. That kid is under age. They checked with his parents to make sure (LOL) you see they have to know what to charge him with. All of Charlotte knows he is guilty. You spell very well and seem somewhat educated! But you need to realize that he is going to prison for a very long time. They are going to hate him in there when they find out what he’s done. So get on back to me if you can. You posted at 2am! Did he give you free beer to type this crap? Are you ok dude?????????
