Former New Hanover Rep. Thomas Wright was back in court today, facing a trial for obstruction of justice. Prosecutors charge that Wright violated North Carolina's campaign finance laws by failing to report $185,000 in campaign contributions. Today the judge has rejected an argument from Wright to dismiss the charge and began jury selection. Wright was sentenced in April to a minimum six-year sentence for mishandling charity contributions and fraudulently obtaining a loan.
