Corruption Case Against Ron Calderon Will Likely be Delayed

 
Corruption Case Against Ron Calderon Will Likely be Delayed
Posted July 23rd, 2014 @ 8:17am by KFBK News - Tim Lantz

It's looking like it's going to be almost a year before the corruption trial of California Sen. Ron Calderon gets started.

A judge still has to approve a motion to delay Democratic Senator Calderon's trial, but prosecutors and the defense are reportedly in agreement that more time is needed to go over all the evidence in the case.  

The original court date set for September of this year will likely be moved to the middle of next May, which means he'll term out of office first.

At the same time, Democratic Senator Rod Wright -- convicted of voter fraud -- is getting another delay in his sentencing.  

Democrat Leland Yee is awaiting trial on bribery and gun running charges.

Each of the senators earns a little more than $95,000 a year as members of the California Legislature, and they will continue to receive paychecks until officially out of office.
