The Toebbe’s federal espionage trial has been rescheduled

The federal espionage trial of Jonathan and Dianna Toebbe has been rescheduled according to the Journal News.

The trial will now begin with jury selection on May 17, 2022 in Martinsburg.

The case was rescheduled to give the U.S. Government more time to review the sensitive information involved.

The couple believed they were selling the information to a foreign government.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) videotaped the couple dropping off the information.

The drop off location was near a hiking trail in Jefferson County which is why the case is being held in Martinsburg.

The couple have been housed in the Eastern Regional Jail in Berkeley County since October.
