DA Hopes To Decide On Easley Case In Next Month

The prosecutor reviewing whether former North Carolina Gov. Mike Easley or others violated campaign finance laws says he hopes to decide in the next month if he'll pursue criminal charges.

Rowan County District Attorney Bill Kenerly told The Associated Press on Monday that he has interviewed witnesses as recently as the last 30 days.

The court system appointed Kenerly to review the case almost a year ago when the State Board of Elections fined Easley's campaign committee $100,000 for failing to timely report dozens of airplane flights carrying Easley.

Easley's attorney didn't immediately return a phone call Monday.
