Hearing Scheduled For Haynie Case This Month


Staff report

Former Boca Raton Mayor Susan Haynie’s motion to dismiss charges against her will be heard by Palm Beach County Circuit Judge Glenn Kelley on Sept. 11.

There are seven charges against her including three counts of official misconduct, perjury in an official proceeding, misuse of public office, corrupt misuse of official position and failure to disclose voting conflicts, according to court records.

Haynie previously filed a motion for dismissal and prosecutors changed some of the charges. She was arrested in April.

Currently, she faces four felony charges and three misdemeanors.

Now, she is filing a second motion to dismiss the current charges. She did not attend a July 26 meeting where she pleaded not guilty and has waived her right to a speedy trial, according to county records.

Depending on the outcome of the Sept. 11 status hearing, which is scheduled for 3:30 p.m., there is potentially another hearing scheduled for Oct. 26.
