Former District Attorney Rex Gore’s trial date was set for Aug. 19 in Brunswick County Superior Court on Monday.
Gore was indicted by a grand jury Aug. 20, 2012, on one count of felonious conspiracy to obtain property by false pretense.
Elizabeth Carlisle, administrative assistant to current D.A. John David, said the Attorney General’s office is handling the prosecution of Gore and requested a special session for the trial.
That trial is expected to take place in Brunswick County unless a motion to change the venue is filed, she said.
