NASHUA (AP) — The former state director for New Hampshire Sen. Kelly Ayotte has waived arraignment on one count of solicitation to prostitution, following his arrest in April.
David Wihby of Manchester is one of 10 men charged with soliciting prostitutes at two Nashua hotels.
The Telegraph of Nashua reports a pre-trial conference was scheduled for June 23.
The 62-year-old Wihby resigned his post as Ayotte's state director a day after his arrest.
He also resigned from the Manchester Board of School Committee, where he served as vice chairman.
Ayotte had said she was shocked at the arrest of a man she described as "a friend for many years."
