Court grants motion to delay ex-judge’s bribery trial into 2019
A court granted an unopposed motion to hold a former state judge’s bribery trial in 2019, court records show.
In a court filing made public Monday afternoon, U.S. District Judge Alfred H. Bennett signed off on an unopposed motion submitted by Rodolfo “Rudy” Delgado’s attorney last week to delay the bribery trial originally set for September into the new year.
Delgado’s new trial date is set for Feb. 25, beginning with jury selection, the record states.
Last week, Michael W. McCrum filed an unopposed motion to move the aforementioned September date for one in late January 2019, citing the volume of evidence related to the case against his client.
“Based on the complexity and breadth of the discovery and the nature of the allegations, defendant requests a continuance of the trial setting,” the motion states.
