Former State Rep. Christina Ayala will go on trial in September on election fraud charges after rejecting a plea deal Thursday.
Superior Court Judge Earl Richards continued the case for trial on Sept. 10 after Ayala, standing with her lawyer, Guy Soares, told the judge she wanted a trial.
“Have a good day,” Ayala quipped smiling as she and Soares later left the Golden Hill Street courthouse.
Wednesday rejected a plea deal on election fraud charges.
Assistant State’s Attorney Christopher Alexy declined comment.
