SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The trial of former Salt Lake County Mayor Nancy Workman is set to begin today.
Yesterday, eight jurors and two alternatives were selected from a pool of 60 random county residents.
The jury consists of five men and three woman.
Jurors will hear opening statements and possible witness testimony today.
Workman faces two felony counts of misuse of public money. She's accused of using taxpayer money to hire two bookkeepers to work under her daughter's direction at the Murray Boys and Girls Club.
A judge has ordered a gag order on Workman and her attorney all the way through the trial.
The trial is expected to last into next week.
If convicted, Workman could face up to 30 years in prison.
