Former state treasurer Martha Shoffner's pre-trial hearing was postponed until Wednesday at 11 a.m., with jury selection to begin afterward at 1 p.m.

The pre-trial hearing for former state Treasurer Martha Shoffner has been delayed until Wednesday at 11 a.m., with jury selection set to begin afterward at 1 p.m., according to a news release from U.S. Attorney’s Office spokesman Cherith Beck.

The pre-trial hearing for Shoffner was originally scheduled for 3 p.m. Tuesday.

Shoffner, 68, faces 24 total counts, which will be divided between two trials. Tuesday’s proceedings are to try Shoffner on bribery and extortion charges. She will face the mail-fraud charges in a March 31 trial.

Shoffner was arrested May 18 at her home in Newport after an FBI investigation into accusations that she accepted more than $36,000 in bribes to reallocate state investments to several bond brokers she favored. She resigned as state treasurer three days later.

Shoffner served as state treasurer from 2007-2013.
