NAMPA -- A Sept. 30 trial date has been set for a former Canyon County prosecutor on charges of preparation of false evidence and computer crimes.

John Bujak is accused of creating false emails to defend himself against a charge of misuse of public funds charge. The trial on that charge is taking place this week.

Bujak resigned as Canyon County Prosecutor in 2010 amid legal turmoil with county officials.

The Idaho Press Tribune reports John Bujak's first jury trial in the case ended in a mistrial because he failed to disclose critical evidence to prosecutors.

In January, a jury found him not guilty of grand theft in a separate case for his role in representing an estate as a private lawyer.
