Wright is Back in Court

RALEIGH -- Attorneys for State Representative Thomas Wright will be in court Thursday.

They want a judge to postpone next week's hearing in front of a House Ethics Committee.

Lawyers say the hearing will make it impossible for Wright to get a fair trial in Criminal Court.

Wright faces six felonies of misusing thousands of dollars of campaign donations and other funds.

Monday, a judge delayed the criminal hearing after Wright's attorney asked for more time to review evidence.

The House Ethics Committee could recommend Wright be expelled from the General Assembly if it finds evidence of unethical behavior.
