ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The attorney for former Albany downtown manager Don Buie has filed motions asking for a change of venue and a demand for speedy trial.

Buie was indicted and arrested for theft of city tax money and conspiracy to defraud.

Monday a Judge denied bond for Buie.

His attorney, Johnnie Graham, wants the trial to be held in another city because of pre-trial publicity in Albany.

She also filed a motion requesting that the trial be held during the next court term in November.
