Trial Date Set for State Senator Wilkerson

Former State Senator Diane Wilkerson has been given a tentative trial date of June 21st, 2010. Judge Douglas P. Woodlock set the date citing his belief that the extended period of time might be best considering the high profile nature of the case.

The former 8 term State senate Democrat was arrested on the morning of October 28, 2008 in a high-profile sting in which she was found taking a $20,000 bribe. The press release by the U.S. District Attorney’s office can be found here.

The trial should be very interesting to see if she in fact implicates anyone else. Should anyone else be implicated, the widespread impact it has on the makeup of our state legislature might be significant. Not to mention the fact that her allegations thus far have made the process relatively entertaining.
