Bosworth trial scheduled for February in Pierre

Posted: Updated:
PIERRE - Former U.S. Senate candidate Annette Bosworth is scheduled to stand trial in February on election law violations.
    
KCCR-AM reports the trial of the Sioux Falls Republican is on the calendar for Feb. 4-6 at the Hughes County Courthouse. Her trial had originally been scheduled for November.
    
Bosworth is charged with six counts each of perjury and filing false documents, which carry a maximum punishment of 24 years in prison and $48,000 in fines.
    
Authorities say the physician fraudulently attested to gathering voter signatures when she was really on a Christian mission trip to the Philippines.
    
Bosworth lost the June 3 Republican primary with 6 percent of the vote and was charged the following day. She said she was the victim of "political persecution."
