A state representative from Chatham County, who was arrested on felony tax charges, is now out of jail.

Democratic Rep. Deborah McManus, 56, of Siler City, was charged Wednesday with three counts of embezzlement of state property. She resigned soon after.

Arrest warrants allege McManus helped a Carolina Family Practice misappropriate more than $47,000 in state withholding tax from Jan. 2011 through July 2013.

McManus is now out of jail. Her case was continued until Jan. 2.
