Prosecutors say McDonnell evidence glitch fixed

RICHMOND, Va. —  Federal prosecutors say they’ve corrected technical problems that delayed the transfer of a vast amount of computerized evidence to former Gov. Bob McDonnell’s attorneys.

McDonnell and his wife, Maureen, are charged in a 14-count indictment with accepting more than $165,000 in loans and gifts from Jonnie Williams, the former CEO of a dietary supplements maker Star Scientific Inc., in exchange for helping promote the company’s products. They have pleaded not guilty. A trial is set for July.

McDonnell’s attorneys complained last week that five million pages of electronic documents arrived “in a chaotic format riddled with errors.” They asked a judge to order prosecutors to fix the problem.

In court papers, prosecutors say no order is necessary because they provided hard drives with data in the defendants’ chosen format Monday.
