WHITEVILLE, NC (WWAY) -- A judge has delayed the trial for a young man with ties to R.C. Soles before testimony started.

The trial was continued after the judge granted a request by B.J. Wright's attorney Scott Dorman to withdraw from the case. Dorman would not comment on why quit the case. Because the jury had not yet been sworn in, it is not considered a mistrial.

Also, the Columbus County Sheriff's Office says the judge has asked for an investigation into possible jury tampering in the case.
