Wake County District Attorney Laurin Freeman said Riddick's attorney is on a capital murder case, so her appearance is delayed for now.
Freeman also said Veronica Gearon, Troy Ellis and Murray Parker's cases won't be heard until Riddick's.
The DA told Judge Carl Fox that her office received 5,000 more pages of discovery related to the case, pages that must be examined before moving forward.
Former Wake Co Register of Deeds Laura Riddick’s att’y is busy w/a capital case, so she didn’t appear in court w/3 other defendants charged in connection w/the embezzlement of funds from her office. Those 3 won’t have cases heard until hers is done. #abc11 pic.twitter.com/EVLI8PwjJu— Anthony Wilson (@AnthonyABC11) January 22, 2018
So while confirming the reset of Riddick's case, Freeman gave no date for the next appearance of the former register of deeds.
The other three defendants left without comment.
Parker's attorney, James Little, told ABC11 he doesn't know when his client is due in court again.
