It wasn't that simple. Sanders was on the line to get a promotion, but her boss called last week and said a background check revealed she had an arrest warrant open. Thinking it was a joke, Sanders laughed. When her boss told her he was serious, "I was like, no, no way. There's no way to have an order," Sanders told WILX.
Charlotte Police Chief Paul Brentar confirmed the arrest warrant to CNN and said Sanders was charged for the non-restoration of a rental property.
"I really don't think going to prison for these two books is OK, and I definitely didn't want to steal their property," Sanders tells WILX.
CNN contacted Sanders and her lawyer.
In the fourth month, the library team sends a certified mail alert stating, "If you do not return these materials within two weeks, we will send them to the Economic Crimes Department," Arras said. At that point, it was considered a theft of property, she said, noting that if mail could not be delivered, the library would receive the returned mail.
Sanders says she never received late notices, as she often switched addresses, according to WILX. She said she had changed her phone number at one point and that she was moving a lot to escape from the abuse of relationships, at one point finding herself in a domestic violence victim's shelter where her address had been entrusted.
The prosecutor's office began the order on October 29, 201
A preliminary hearing in the case is scheduled for November 7 at 10:30 p.m., the spokesman said.
