Former AR mayor wants new trial

TEXARKANA, AR (KSLA) – Ex-Garland City Mayor Yvonne Dockery says she's filed a motion in United States Federal Court for a new trial.

Dockery hand delivered the request to the district clerk.

Back in July she was convicted of three counts of mail fraud and is now waiting to be sentenced.

Dockery also claims there was conspiracy against her by the FBI and Garland City council members.

The former mayor is accused of fraud surrounding missing fire trucks, misplaced patrol cars and embezzlement.
