WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) - A former Davidson County prosecutor seeking a Superior Court judge’s seat has been indicted after authorities say she offered a district judge $20,000 to persuade her husband to drop out of the race.

Multiple media outlets report 43-year-old Wendy Joyce Terry is accused of texting District Judge April Wood in July, offering to give $20,000 to Wood’s re-election campaign if she would persuade her husband, Jeffrey J. Berg, to drop out of the race for Davidson Superior Court judge.

Terry planned to run for the seat held by Superior Court Judge Theodore Royster, who is up for re-election in 2016. According to the indictments, Berg had also announced plans to run for Royster’s seat.

Terry is facing multiple charges, including felony obstructing justice and attempt to violate campaign contribution limitation.
