Ex-treasurer questioned by judge at plea hearing

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A plea hearing for Martha Shoffner has hit a snag after a federal judge questioned whether the former Arkansas treasurer is admitting all elements of the crime.

Shoffner said in court Monday that she wanted to plead guilty to one count of mail fraud. Prosecutors accuse her of misspending campaign donations on personal items.

Shoffner admitted using the campaign money to pay personal bills - but didn't admit that that was her intent when she accepted the donations. U.S. District Judge Leon Holmes sent the court into recess and asked Shoffner to discuss the matter with her attorneys.

A similar issue arose last year when Shoffner tried to plead guilty in a separate case accusing her of bribery. Holmes rejected her plea and that case went to trial.

(November 10, 2014) – Baptist Health Medical Center-Little Rock is the only hospital in the state to acquire the world's only articulating, high-definition, 3D surgical video system from Olympus. Surgical video systems, through the collaborative use of a video processor, light source, laparoscope and monitor, enable surgeons to peer inside the human body to diagnose, detect and treat a range of diseases and conditions using a minimally invasive approach.
