NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — A federal judge has postponed the sentencing of former Republican congressional candidate Lisa Wilson-Foley in the campaign finance scandal that also led to the conviction of former Connecticut Gov. John Rowland.
Wilson-Foley and her husband pleaded guilty last March to conspiring to hide $35,000 they paid the former Republican governor for help with Wilson-Foley’s 2012 campaign in the state’s 5th District.
Wilson-Foley had been scheduled for sentencing on Tuesday, but Judge Janet Bond Arterton has agreed to push that back until next Friday.
Arterton sentenced Brian Foley on Friday to three years of probation, including three months in a halfway house, for his role in the conspiracy.
Prosecutors are requesting a 10-month prison sentence for Wilson-Foley, who unlike her husband, did not testify against Rowland.
