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...

    CHILLIWACK, B.C. — A former British Columbia hang-glider pilot whose passenger fell 300 metres to her death during a flight that was an anniversary gift pleaded guilty Friday to criminal negligence causing death.

Orders was also charged with obstruction of justice over allegations he swallowed a memory card that may have contained video of the incident. It wasn’t immediately clear what would happen to that charge.

ACORN itself was named as a criminal defendant in the case for allegedly running an illegal voter registration scheme called "21," or "Blackjack," which...

    DETROIT - Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick pleaded for forgiveness from his family and his constituents Wednesday in an emotional televised speech, his delayed response to recently revealed racy text messages that contradict his sworn testimony that he did not have a physical relationship with a key aide. "I truly apologize to you," Kilpatrick said, turning to his wife, Carlita, who sat by his side, holding his hand, at their family church. Kilpatrick did not publicly specify, however, what he was apologizing for, saying legal matters prevented him from doing so. A prosecutor is investigating whether the mayor and chief of staff...

    SAN JOSE Mayor Ron Gonzales pleaded not guilty Wednesday to public corruption charges for his part in an alleged garbage-related scheme. Santa Clara Superior Court Judge James Emerson set a trial date of May 14, 2007, nearly five months after Gonzales is scheduled to leave office. Attorneys on both sides said they'd need at least nine months to pore over more than 100,000 pages of documents and conduct interviews related to the case. Prosecutors say Gonzales pressured Norcal Waste Systems Inc. into using Teamsters, instead of lower-paid union workers, at a recycling plant, and then secretly agreed to help the...
