Judge Grants Delay In Vicksburg Mayor's Trial

Posted: Updated:
Jackson -

A federal judge has agreed to reschedule Vicksburg Mayor Paul Winfield's trial on a federal bribery charge.
    
Winfield is charged with seeking $10,000 in cash in exchange for a city contract. He has pleaded not guilty.
    
A judge this week granted a delay so Winfield's lawyer has more time to review evidence in the case.
    
Winfield's trial is now set for Aug. 5 in Jackson.
    
Winfield, a 39-year-old Democrat, is completing his first term as mayor of the historic Mississippi River city and qualified to seek re-election.
    
The FBI arrested Winfield on Feb. 20. A federal grand jury indicted him March 19.
