WAKE COUNTY, N.C. -- Former Rockingham County District Attorney, Craig Blitzer pleaded guilty to misdemeanor Failure to Discharge Duties of His Office in Wake County Superior Court.
Blitzer also agreed to pay back the state $48,000 which will go to the judicial department.
Recently Blitzer and former Person/Caswell County District Attorney, Wallace Bradsher were indicted in a wife-swapping case. The former prosecutors are accused of hiring each other's wives and allowing them to collect substantial salaries for little work.
The SBI began investigating last summer after a former employee of Bradsher filed a lawsuit. In the lawsuit, the former employee claims she was fired after notifying the SBI about the hirings.
