Baisden's attorney, Jim Cagle, was sent a copy of Ruby's hearing request, according to federal court filings. Cagle did not immediately return a phone message.
As of late Wednesday afternoon the date of Baisden's plea hearing was not posted on the official online calendar for federal court in the state's southern district.
While Thornsbury was indicted the same day as Baisden, he faces a completely different set of charges.
Federal investigators say Thornsbury corrupted the legal system in repeated attempts to frame the husband of an exlover. Thornsbury pleaded "absolutely not guilty" at his own arraignment.
A deputy clerk in the Mingo County Circuit Court confirmed Wednesday Thornsbury's wife, Dreama, has filed for divorce. The clerk said she was not allowed to provide any other information.
Kim Woodruff is the former court employee who called off the relationship with Thornsbury. Robert Woodruff, her husband, is the man Thornsbury allegedly tried to frame.
Mike Callaghan, the attorney representing the Woodruffs, told the Daily Mail in late August the couple was ready to file lawsuits against a slew of entities mentioned in Thornsbury's indictment. Monday, Callaghan said those lawsuits are on hold in an attempt to settle the cases with formal mediation.
"I've talked with them, and I've made a demand. They need to respond," Callaghan said.
In the formal mediation process, an independent mediator tries to find a compromise. If both parties can't agree, Callaghan could still go through with the lawsuits.
In Thornsbury's criminal case, Judge Thomas Johnston recently ordered the cancellation of a pretrial motion previously scheduled for Sept. 26, according to federal court filings. Johnston's order states he canceled the hearing because there were no pending motions in the case.
Thornsbury's attorney, Stephen Jory, did not immediately return a phone message.
Melvin Smith, spokesman for Goodwin's office, would not comment on whether the judge is working on a plea agreement.
