ALBANY, GA (WALB) –There was a blow to the defense in the case of former Albany downtown manager Don Buie. A judge decided he will stand trial in Albany.

Buie's attorney Johnnie Graham tells WALB News Ten that late Wednesday afternoon, Judge Denise Marshall denied their request for a change of venue.

The defense claimed there has been too much pre-trial publicity and that would prevent Buie from receiving a fair trial in Dougherty County. Judge Marshall found no evidence of that.

The case is scheduled to go to trial December 14th. Prosecutors say Buie stole thousands of dollars of taxpayer money by writing ADICA checks to his wife and girlfriend.
