DWI Case Goes Forward with New Prosecutor

Posted December 12, 1998 6:00 a.m. EST

— A special prosecutor from Johnston County will handle the case of a Durham dentist charged with DWI.

Michael Beam has been assigned to the case.

In September Judge Craig Brown dropped DWI charges against Kenneth Podger in a hallway deal.

Later, the judge changed his mind, reinstated the charges and stepped aside from the case.

A first hearing is scheduled this week.
