The Michigan Attorney General’s office says two men accused of intimidating minority voters in Detroit and other cities will stand trial.
This follows a failed dismissal attempt by the defendants, Jack Burkman and Jacob Wohl of Arlington, Virginia. They’re in Wayne County on four felony counts related to election law.
They face up to 24 years for the alleged political robocall scheme designed to keep voters from participating in the 2020 election.
The Michigan Court of Appeals denied the appeal Thursday, meaning the case will go to trial. The date for the trial has not yet been set.
