The Telegraph of Macon reports John Williams is scheduled to stand trial April 23 in U.S. District Court.
Prosecutors say Williams tried to get a car deal to pay him for arranging the sale of a truck to the police department. Williams says he’s not guilty. He lost re-election to his City Council seat in November.
The ex-councilman has been mostly confined to his home after violating terms of his original bond in February, when he traveled to Florida to bail a woman out of jail. Williams is also facing unrelated charges in Houston County Superior Court.
