Judge allows Senate candidate Bosworth's attorney to withdraw
PIERRE (AP) — A Hughes County judge has approved a motion by the attorney of former U.S. Senate candidate Annette Bosworth allowing him to withdraw from his client's case.
Bosworth is charged with six counts each of perjury and filing false documents, which carry a maximum punishment of 24 years in prison and $48,000 in fines.
In the motion filed July 17, attorney Brandon Taliaferro said Bosworth had not fulfilled obligations to her attorney, but didn't elaborate.
Bosworth on Monday objected to the motion. She says his motion has made it impossible to find new representation.
Taliaferro says he told Bosworth about her obligations weeks before he filed the motion.
Taliaferro says he required four things from his client, including that her husband Chad Haber not run for the position of attorney general.
