ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - A St. Paul police officer accused of helping a gang member by using a fake identity to send him money in prison is expected in Ramsey County District Court.

Trial is scheduled Monday for Ruby Diaz. A criminal complaint says the officer developed a relationship with a man convicted of attempted murder and sent $1,500 to him using another woman’s identity.

Diaz is on leave from the St. Paul Police Department pending the outcome of her case. She faces three felony charges. KSTP-TV (https://bit.ly/1yHOJq3 ) reports a Hennepin County prosecutor says Diaz rejected a plea offer that would have capped her jail time at 90 days if she pleaded guilty to one of the three charges.

Prosecutors say Diaz met the convict when he was a student at Humboldt Secondary School where she was a liaison officer.
