Woman pleads not guilty to conspiring to bribe a juror in Feeding Our Future trial

A woman who prosecutors say was recruited to fly from Seattle to surveil and bribe a juror in this month's federal meal fraud case pleaded not guilty to all charges Thursday.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Douglas Micko released Ladan Mohamed Ali, 31, from custody after her brief initial appearance in a St. Paul federal courtroom on conditions that included a prohibition from contacting potential victims or witnesses in the case.

Ali, who has ties to Minnesota, is one of five people charged by indictment in the first federal juror bribery case seen in Minnesota in generations. Both Ali and her attorney, Eric Newmark, declined to comment after Thursday's hearing.
