Shoffner ordered to appear for federal arraignment

Posted By on Mon, Jun 24, 2013 at 10:54 AM

Former Arkansas Treasurer Martha Shoffner must appear personally in court to enter a not guilty plea to her indictment on multiple charges of taking money from a securities dealer in return for bond business with her office.

Federal Magistrate Joe Volpe Friday refused her waiver of a personal appearance at the arraignment at 10 a.m. Thursday to enter a not guilty plea. The order didn't explain the denial. Shoffner's most recent appearance in court fell apart and produced a lengthier indictment when a planned plea bargain was rejected after she failed to properly admit the guilt of her actions.
