PHOENIX (AP) -

A new trial date has been set for three former Maricopa County sheriff's employees accused of aiding smugglers while they worked for the police agency.

A Sept. 3 trial was set for former Deputy Alfredo Aguirre Navarrette and former detention officers Marcella M. Hernandez and Sylvia Rios Najera.

All three pleaded not guilty to charges and no longer work for the agency.

Navarrette is accused of helping drug smugglers by laundering illegal proceeds, using a police database to get information for the group and assisting a separate smuggling ring.

Hernandez is accused of assisting a cartel member and his drug trafficking group by letting the group use her two residences as stash houses for drugs and drug proceeds.

Najera is accused of conspiring to launder the trafficking group's illegal proceeds.
