Rowland sentencing postponed

HARTFORD, Conn. – A federal judge agreed Thursday to postpone the sentencing of former Gov. John G. Rowland.

Jurors handed Rowland seven guilty verdicts last week related to work he did or tried to do for two congressional campaigns.

After the jury foreman read the verdict, prosecutors indicated the would be willing to push back the Dec. 12 sentencing date until after the holidays. U.S. District Judge Janet Bond Arterton set 10 a.m. Jan. 7, 2015, as the new date.

The Jan. 7 sentencing date is the same day as the next gubernatorial inauguration.
