The Washington Times Daily - - METRO -

A Mary­land state sen­a­tor fac­ing fed­eral cor­rup­tion charges says he plans to re­main in of­fice while he fights the al­le­ga­tions.

The Bal­ti­more Sun re­ported that Sen. Nathaniel Oaks wants his trial resched­uled un­til af­ter the 2018 leg­isla­tive ses­sion of the Gen­eral Assem­bly.

Mr. Oaks said he is still ful­fill­ing his du­ties as a state sen­a­tor and plans to con­tinue do­ing so, de­spite his le­gal bat­tles.

Pros­e­cu­tors al­lege that Mr. Oaks was paid $10,300 for writ­ing let­ters on of­fi­cial let­ter­head with fraud­u­lent de­tails to help a con­fi­den­tial FBI source ob­tain fed­eral grants.
