Former Va. Gov. McDonnell, Wife Plead Not Guilty

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - They have been warned. Judges have told everyone from former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell and his wife, Maureen, to prosecutors and defense lawyers that the McDonnells' trial on federal corruption charges will not be played out in the news media.

The warnings were issued Friday after the McDonnells pleaded not guilty to the charges that they accepted lavish gifts from the CEO of a dietary supplement maker in exchange for promoting his company. A trial is scheduled to begin July 28.

Almost all of the relevant details of the government's case against the McDonnells were first made public through months of news stories based on anonymous sources.
