Tiffany Alston on trial for theft, misconduct
ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Attorneys have rested their case in the trial of a Maryland lawmaker accused of theft and misconduct.
Anne Arundel Circuit Court Judge Paul Harris Jr. gave instructions to the jury on Friday in the case of Delegate Tiffany Alston.
Attorneys are scheduled to give closing arguments on Monday. The jury is expected to begin deliberations later that day.
Alston, D-Prince George's, is accused by state prosecutors of paying an employee in her law office about $800 in state funds. Her attorneys say the employee performed legislative work from the law office.
Alston also faces charges in a separate case that she used campaign funds for wedding expenses.
