Indicted lawmaker says he’ll stay in office, fight charges
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.
