Martin Bertram, who lost his bid for a Bakersfield City Council seat in
November, is scheduled to go on trial in April on charges he illegally
took private campaign data from the computers of former Kern High School
District Trustee and Assembly candidate Ken Mettler.

The charge is a misdemeanor.

Court records show the case is scheduled to begin April 4 and that
Bertram, through attorney Seth O'Dell, demanded his case go to trial
during a preliminary hearing Friday.

Deputy District Attorney Joseph Marcano said he did not offer Bertram a
plea bargain.

"After talking with his attorney, I didn't think the case would resolve
without a jury trial," Marcano said.

O'Dell confirmed the case is moving forward.
