Former prosecutor says he’ll call judge as a witness

(Raleigh) — Former Person-Caswell County District Attorney Wallace Bradsher — who faces a variety of criminal charges – has told Superior Court Judge Paul Ridgeway that he intends to call the judge, Wake County District Attorney Lorrin Freeman and Assistant District Attorney Tom Ford as witnesses in his trial.

The Greensboro News and Record reports the disclosure came during a hearing Monday in a Wake County courtroom.

Bradsher resigned from his office amid a variety of criminal charges including obstruction of justice and failure to discharge the duties of his office. Former Rockingham County District Attorney Craig Blitzer was also named following a year-long State Bureau of Investigation probe charging both men with theft of state funds.

Blitzer pleaded guilty last year and is expected to testify against Bradsher, who is representing himself in the case.
