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. 

According to Freeman, the two men are scheduled to appear in Wake County Superior Court the week of July 24.
