READ: Time Running Out on Plea Deal Offer for Dukes

Dukes faces multiple charges of public corruption. 

FOX 7 received an attorney statement from Dukes Tuesday night.

It reads in part:  "Ms. Dukes strongly re-iterates her innocence and rejects the latest proposal which has an even more unacceptable condition than the previous rejected proposals.

The inexplicable request that she undergo some drug assessment is absurd, and shame on the D.A.’s office for even suggesting such a condition.

Neither Ms. Dukes, nor her attorneys, have any further comment on this matter, and she looks forward to her day in court."
