WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) - A former Davidson County assistant district attorney will give up running for a judicial position as part of a deferred prosecution agreement.

Media outlets report Wendy Joyce Terry received two years’ supervised probation and was fined $5,000 Tuesday as part of the agreement. Prosecutors will dismiss the charges if she complies with the agreement.

Terry was indicted on six charges, including two felony counts of felony buying and selling offices. Prosecutors say in July, Terry offered district court Judge April Wood a $20,000 campaign contribution to persuade Wood’s husband, Jeffrey Berg, to withdraw from a Superior Court judge race that Terry was also running in.

Terry’s attorney S. Wesley Brittain says his client has maintained her innocence throughout, but the ultimate goal was to make sure the charges were dismissed.
