McGuiness trial

Delaware Auditor of Accounts Kathleen McGuiness.

Jury selection in the case against State Auditor Kathleen McGuiness has been set for Monday in Kent County.

Assuming jury selection goes according to plan, court officials expect opening arguments to begin Tuesday.

The trial was moved from Wilmington to Dover after McGuiness’s defense attorney objected to hearing the case in a different county than the auditor’s office. 

McGuiness was reindicted in Kent County Monday, June 6 on the following charges:

  • Conflict of interest: Violation of the State Officials’ Code of Conduct (misdemeanor)
  • Theft (felony)
  • Structuring: Non-compliance with procurement law (misdemeanor)
  • Official misconduct (misdemeanor)
  • Intimidation (felony)
