ABINGDON, VA (WJHL) – Bristol Virginia Utilities’ former chief financial officer plans on filing a motion to ask a judge to acquit her after a federal jury found her guilty of 14 corruption-related crimes last week, according to federal court documents.
Stacey Pomrenke has 14 days from last Friday to file that motion, but just yesterday her attorney asked for more time, according to court records. In a motion for extension of time, her attorney asked the judge to give Pomrenke until April 29 to file her motion for judgment of acquittal.
Pomrenke is the seventh person found guilty in the federal corruption investigation of BVU.
The public utility fired her following last week’s conviction.
