Shoffner says the government "failed to present sufficient proof on each and every element" of fourteen counts against her.
In a three-page motion, attorney Grant Ballard says a jury should not have found Shoffner guilty under the Hobbs Act or the federal bribery statute.
The Hobbs Act deals with affects on interstate commerce. Attorneys argue there is no federal interest in the alleged crimes to warrant prosecution under the bribery statute.
"The government failed to produce any such evidence making a Judgement of Acquittal necessary," the pleading reads.
A federal jury found Shoffner, 69, guilty on all counts in a trial earlier this month at the federal courthouse in Little Rock.
Shoffner resigned from the state treasurer's office in May 2013 after her arrest by federal agents at her home in Jackson County for accepting money in exchange for steering state business to a bond broker.
Shoffner is set to stand trial on additional charges related to misuse of campaign funds next month.
