Person/Caswell County DA Wallace Bradsher has resigned. His resignation follows a nearly 10 month investigation into alleged theft at his office, as well as the office of prosecutor Craig Blitzer. Craig Blitzer resigned in March. The investigation has been conducted by the State Bureau of Investigation and has been lead by Wake County district attorney Lorrin Freeman. Freeman declined to comment on whether the resignation was part of a plea deal. The investigation involved allegations that in an effort to circumvent laws preventing Bradsher and Blitzer from hiring their own wives, they hired each other’s wives without requiring them to work. Governor Roy Cooper has appointed Jacqueline Perez, an Assistant Attorney General with the North Carolina Department of Justice, to serve as Bradsher’s replacement.
