ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — A federal judge has issued an arrest warrant for Roy McGrath, the one-time aide to former Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan, after McGrath failed to appear in court as his trial on federal fraud charges was set to begin.

U.S. District Judge Deborah Boardman issued the arrest warrant in U.S. District Court in Baltimore on Monday morning. McGrath faces an eight-count federal indictment. Charges include wire fraud, including securing a more than $233,000 severance payment equal to one year of salary as the head of Maryland Environmental Service. He also faces fraud and embezzlement charges connected to roughly $170,000 in expenses.

McGrath has pleaded not guilty.
