Incoming NC Lawmaker Faces Misdemeanor Charge

An incoming North Carolina lawmaker faces a misdemeanor charge of failing to turn over business documents.

The Charlotte Observer reports that the charge against Nick Mackey stems from a nearly $100,000 judgment against his law firm for unpaid rent.

The Democrat defeated Republican Dempsey Miller of Huntersville to represent House District 99 after beating six-term incumbent Drew Saunders in the primary.

Mackey says he the charge is a misunderstanding and he already turned over the documents from his law firm. He says a Tuesday court hearing should sort out the mix-up.

Mackey says he also plans to pay off the $85,094 for breach of contract and $12,764 for attorneys' fees in the unpaid rent case.
