Former Buncombe County manager Wanda Greene is asking the federal court to lift restrictions that prevent her from having family dinners with her sister.

A grand jury earlier this month handed down indictments accusing Wanda Greene and her son Michael Greene of conspiracy to embezzle, steal, obtain by fraud or misapply Buncombe County funds and wire fraud offenses.

Part of the conditions of the Greenes' release prevent them from having contact with anyone who may be called to testify. That includes Wanda Greene's sister Irene Wolfe, who works for Buncombe County and is a potential witness.

According to a public information request, less than a week after the U.S. Attorney's Office confirmed an investigation of Wanda Greene, Wolfe asked for a voluntary reassignment from financial services manager to an accounting position.

Greene and her sister often meet for meals, according to the paperwork asking for the change in restrictions. The motion said Greene understands that, as with her son Michael, she's not to discuss the case.
