NEW HAVEN, Conn. – A federal judge on Sunday indefinitely postponed the sentencing for a former congressional candidate involved in a campaign finance scandal that led to the second conviction of former Gov. John G. Rowland.

U.S. District Judge Janet Bond Arterton postponed the sentencing of Lisa Wilson-Foley until the court can sort through the claims “raised in the filings for United States v. Rowland.”

The issue is whether the U.S. attorney’s office disclosed all the information it should have to Rowland’s defense team before the September trial. Rowland’s attorney raised the issue of disclosure after reading the brief filed by Wilson-Foley’s attorneys on Dec. 29. Rowland’s attorneys used the information in Wilson-Foley’s sentencing memo to successfully postpone the former governor’s sentencing, which also has yet to be rescheduled.
