SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - The husband of former U.S. Senate candidate Annette Bosworth has been indicted on election law violations in connection with his wife’s problematic 2014 campaign.

A Hughes County indictment charges Chad Haber with one count each of offering false or forged instrument for filing and perjury.

Authorities say Haber turned in a petition nominating his wife Annette Bosworth that included false or forged signatures.

A former candidate for state attorney general, Haber, says he received the court summons Saturday and is expected to appear in court later this month. He says the charges are unfounded.

A jury in May found Bosworth guilty of six counts each of perjury and filing false documents in connection with her campaign petitions. She avoided serving prison time when a judge handed down a suspended sentence.
