Richmond, Va. – Former Virginia First Lady Maureen McDonnell’s appeal will be tentatively heard in Richmond between October 27th and October 29th.

The “Tentative Session Assignment” was filed Friday, July 17th. Maureen McDonnell and her attorneys have until July 27th to notify the court if they have any scheduling conflicts.

Maureen and her husband, former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell, were convicted of numerous criminal charges in a six-week corruption trial ending last September.

Maureen was convicted of eight of the 13 counts she was facing, which included one count of conspiracy to commit honest-services wire fraud, one count of conspiracy to obtain property under color of official right, two counts of honest-services wire fraud and four counts of obtaining property under color of official right.

She was sentenced in February to one year and one day in prison. She filed her appeal in March.
