Statement on the lawsuit by former register of deeds and convicted embezzler

Laura Riddick seeking additional pension money from her victims

Raleigh, NC – Laura Riddick, retrospectively dissatisfied with the light penalty which she received three months ago in a plea bargain, is now reaching out of the confines of the prison cell to continue to pick the pockets of her victims. “This is hubris incarnate, manifested audacity laced with temerity,” states current Wake County Register of Deeds, Charles Gilliam.

“Laura Riddick now claims that the adjustment of a portion of her pension is unconstitutionally ‘cruel and unusual’ and is an ‘excessive fine,’” Gilliam continues. “The only thing excessive is the amount of money she stole, the only thing unusual is the leniency of her plea-bargained sentence, and the only thing remotely cruel is the harm she continues to inflict on the people of our State.”
