A Hughes County grand jury indicted the Sioux Falls physician last week on multiple counts of perjury and filing false documents.

Authorities say she fraudulently attested to gathering voter signatures when she was really on a Christian mission trip to the Philippines.

Bosworth lost the June 3 Republican primary with 6 percent of the vote.

Attorney General Marty Jackley filed charges against her the next day and the 42-year-old turned herself in to the Minnehaha County Jail.

She was released and then held a news conference during which she called the charges "political persecution."
