      LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — A trial date has been set for a Lancaster County Board member and legislative candidate facing a drunken driving case.

      A hearing was held Thursday for Brent Smoyer, and a judge set a trial date for June 18. Smoyer was not present but was represented by his lawyer.

      The 32-year-old Smoyer was driving when he was stopped on April 11 by University of Nebraska-Lincoln police. A sobriety test showed his blood alcohol content was above the legal limit to drive.

      Smoyer was charged with driving under the influence and disobeying a traffic control signal. A message left for his attorney was not immediately returned Thursday.

      Smoyer, a Republican, will face Democrat Matt Hansen this fall to represent northeast Lincoln in the Nebraska Legislature.
