Second Shoffner trial shifted to December

By Gavin Lesnick

The second trial for former state Treasurer Martha Shoffner has been moved to December.

Shoffner was convicted earlier this month of 14 extortion and bribery charges for steering state bond business to a broker who in turn gave her at least $36,000 in cash, including some money delivered in a pie box.

But Shoffner was also set to go to trial March 31 on separate mail-fraud charges stemming from allegations she used campaign donations for personal use.

In an order issued Thursday, U.S. District Judge Leon Holmes delayed the trial until Dec. 1. Shoffner's attorney filed a motion seeking the continuance earlier this month.

Shoffner earlier this week asked the government to pay for her attorney as she challenges the previous conviction and prepares for the next trial because her financial resources have been exhausted.

This female canine will die of old age before she sees a day in court. And by the way she looks, that might be in the next week or two. if this were a poor person or a Republican, they'd be under the jail by now.
