The corruption trial of former Congressman Aaron Schock has now been moved back to next June.
Schock had been scheduled to go to trial in January on charges that he misused both government and campaign dollars for his personal benefit. Schock contends the case is really the product of prosecutors trying to put a big notch in their belts by taking down a rising star in the Republican Party.
The case was recently reassigned away from the U.S. Attorney’s office in the Central District amid questions about the conduct of prosecutors.
A new judge has also been brought in to hear the case.
