Saying she was “looking forward” to her trial, former State Treasurer Martha Shoffner (D) pleaded “not guilty” in federal court on Thursday (June 27).
A July 29th trial date was set today for Shoffner before Judge Leon Holmes.
Shoffner resigned from her position in May after being arrested by federal authorities on charges of extortion.
She faces a 14-count indictment that includes 7 counts of receipt of bribes by an agent of state government receiving federal funds, 6 counts of extortion, and 1 count of attempted extortion.
