Former U.S. Senate candidate Annette Bosworth is scheduled to stand trial in November in Pierre election law violations.
A November 13-14 trial was set Tuesday for the Sioux Falls Republican.
The physician is charged with six counts each of perjury and filing false documents, which carry a maximum punishment of 24 years in prison and $48,000 in fines.
Prosecutors say she fraudulently attested to gathering voter signatures when she was really on a Christian mission trip to the Philippines.
Bosworth lost the June 3 Republican primary with 6 percent of the vote. She was charged the next day and said she was the victim of "political persecution."
Former independent candidate Clayton Walker, of Black Hawk, is also charged with perjury and filing false election.
