Former state Rep. Coy Privette of Kannapolis was charged today with six counts of aiding and abetting prostitution, the Salisbury Post is reporting.
Privette, a Republican, is a Cabarrus County commissioner and president of the N.C. Christian Action League.
The Salisbury Post says Privette appeared at the Rowan County Magistrate's Office today and was released on a written promise to appear in court on Aug. 22.
The Charlotte Observer is reporting that the misdemeanor charges stemmed from an investigation into a forged check at First Charter Bank in Kannapolis. Also charged was Tiffany Denise Summers, 32, of Salisbury. She was charged with six counts of prostitution.
Summers has been convicted of drug, prostitution and possessing stolen goods, according to court documents.
