ROCHESTER - A trial date has been set for a former Republican state representative charged in connection with alleged voter fraud during New Hampshire's presidential primary.
Don Leeman's trial on bribery and witness tampering charges is scheduled for March 13, 2017.
The attorney general's office says the Rochester man, who resigned in May, was representing and voting in a district in which he was no longer domiciled during the February primary.
Authorities say Leeman was living in a Rochester Housing Authority building outside his district. He allegedly asked a housing authority employee to provide a letter falsely saying his move was temporary and offered a donation in exchange for a transfer to a building within his district.
