GILLETTE, Wyo. (AP) - A former Albany County attorney accused of buying personal electronics with government funds is set to go to trial.

The Laramie Boomerang reports (http://bit.ly/1KT1e55 ) that on Wednesday a judge refused to dismiss the charges against Richard Bohling.

Bohling has pleaded not guilty to criminal charges that he took cameras and computer equipment while serving as county attorney. Bohling served as county attorney from 2002 until last year.

In Bohling’s lawyers’ motion to dismiss the charges, they claim the state Division of Criminal Investigation targeted Bohling because he refused to base drug cases on information from a confidential informant who had a felony conviction.

Bohling is scheduled to appear for trial Oct. 26.
