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.
