SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A February First trial date is set for the former Salt Lake County mayor facing felony misuse of public money charges.

Nancy Workman's lawyers said yesterday that they were ready to go to court on the charges, and proposed using a questionnaire to speed jury selection.

The main issue is whether prospective jurors have already made up their minds about the well-publicized case.

Workman is accused of misusing about 17-thousand dollars in health department funds to hire a bookkeeper at a nonprofit organization where her daughter was a top financial officer.

Eight days have been set aside for the trial, and about a dozen witnesses are expected to testify.
