LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) Former Arkansas treasurer Martha Shoffner pleaded not guilty Thursday to mail fraud charges alleging that she misspent campaign funds counts that won't be part of her upcoming bribery and extortion trial.
Shoffner, a Democrat, didn't speak during her arraignment in federal court on the new charges, 10 counts of mail fraud. The charges allege that she misspent $9,800 in campaign funds on clothing, cosmetics and other personal items. The judge set a March 31 trial date.
Shoffner is scheduled to stand trial Monday on the bribery and extortion charges. In that case, she is accused of steering state business to a bond broker in exchange for $36,000 in cash, including payments that were hidden in a pie box.
