BALTIMORE (AP) A December trial date has been set for Baltimore City Councilwoman Helen Holton, who is charged with violating campaign finance laws.

The Dec. 7 trial date was set at a brief hearing Wednesday. Holton did not attend. Holton's lawyer Joshua Treem says his client "would like to have this case finished."

Holton was indicted in July in connection with a political poll Baltimore developers Ronald Lipscomb and John Paterakis paid $12,500 for. State law limits campaign donations to $4,000 from individual contributors per four-year election cycle.

Holton was initially charged with bribery, but a judge threw out those charges.
