Trial Scheduled for Maryland Lawmaker


ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP)- A trial is scheduled to begin for a Maryland lawmaker accused of using campaign money to help pay for wedding expenses.

Delegate Tiffany Alston's trial is officially scheduled to begin on Tuesday in Anne Arundel County Circuit Court.

Last month, state prosecutors and defense attorneys had been working on a plea agreement to resolve the case and a separate one, but the two sides were unable to reach an agreement at that time.

Neither side is commenting on what might happen in court on Tuesday.

Alston, a Prince George's County Democrat, was found guilty by a jury in June of misdemeanor theft and misconduct by using $800 in state money to pay an employee in her law office.
