McHenry campaign worker: prosecution deferred PDF Print
Thursday, 09 August 2007 20:00

26-year-old Michael Aaron Lay of Raleigh, a former campaign worker for 10th District Representative Patrick McHenry, has been granted a deferred prosecution in Gaston County Superior Court.

Lay will be on unsupervised probation for six months. If he completes the probation- all charges will be dismissed according to the District Attorneys Office. Other terms of the agreement include his performing 100 hours of community service and paying a $440 fine.

In May, a Gaston County grand jury indicted Lay on two counts of felony election fraud. Lay is accused of voting in the 2004 primary and primary runoff elections in Gaston County: illegally. Lay listed his address at McHenrys Cherryville home. McHenry, who has called the charges political, stated, for Aaron Lays sake, I am glad this matter has been resolved. Aaron is a fine young man with a bright future ahead of him.

Lay graduated from University of Tennessee law school in May and plans to take the bar exam in February.
