CANYON COUNTY — John Bujak’s preparation of false evidence and computer crime trial has been scheduled for Sept. 30.
The first jury trial in the case ended in a mistrial because Bujak failed to disclose critical evidence to the prosecution.
Bujak is accused of creating a false email to help his defense in his misuse of public funds charge. The second trial for that case is taking place this week.
If convicted Bujak could face up to five years in prison and a $50,000 fine for each of the two felony counts in the false evidence and computer crime case.
At today’s Bujak misuse of public funds trial, former Canyon County Commissioner David Ferdinand testified that all the money from the Nampa prosecution contract, some of which Bujak is accused of stealing, was to have come to the county. Bujak argues commissioners said he could profit from the agreement.
