Raleigh, N.C. — A Durham bread company owner is expected in court on Friday on fraud charges.
Paul Evan Seelig owned the bread company, Great Specialty. He was arrested in February on accusations that he knowingly sold bread advertised as being gluten-free – even though tests showed the food as having high levels of the substance.
Seelig was later released from jail on a $100,000 bond.
In June, a Superior Court judge increased Seelig’s bond to $750,000 because he allegedly gave police false information in the murder case of state school board member Kathy Taft.
Judge Donald Stephens said Seelig gave police bad and misleading information that implicated an innocent person in the crime.
Seelig was being held in the Wake County jail on Thursday.
