FORT PAYNE, Ala. — Former state Sen. Lowell Barron of Fyffe has entered a not guilty plea and waived his right to an arraignment.
Barron’s attorney, Joe Espy, filed the court papers Tuesday in Fort Payne.
Barron and a former campaign aide, Rhonda Jill Johnson, were indicted in April on six ethics and campaign finance charges stemming from Barron’s unsuccessful re-election campaign in 2010. They are accused of diverting $58,000 from Barron’s campaign account for Johnson’s personal use and for non-campaign uses. They are also accused of transferring a 2007 Toyota Camry from campaign property to Johnson for non-campaign purposes.
Johnson is scheduled for arraignment June 24.
