HARTFORD, Conn. – A federal court judge agreed Friday to delay the sentencing a former congressional candidate involved in a campaign finance scandal that lead to the conviction of former Gov. John G. Rowland.

U.S. Judge Janet Bond Arterton delayed the sentencing of Lisa Wilson-Foley the same day as Wilson-Foley’s husband, Brian Foley, was sentenced to three years probation and three months in a halfway house for his role in the scandal. Wilson-Foley was supposed to be sentenced on Tuesday, Jan. 13.

Unlike, her husband, Wilson-Foley did not testify during Rowland’s trial in September. U.S. Attorney’s are asking for 10 months in prison despite her guilty plea to a misdemeanor charge. The feds claim Wilson-Foley was uncooperative in their case against Rowland.
