Trial For Former Manchester Officials Delayed

The federal trial for two former Manchester officials has been delayed.

With the recent indictment of former Mayor Daugh White, both he and former Assistant Chief of Police Todd Roberts agreed to waive their rights to a speedy trial to have more time to prepare their defense.

The trial would have started in less than two weeks. Now it is moved to May 29th in the Frankfort Federal Courthouse.

Both men are accused of making one million dollars from dealing cocaine and prescription pills for several years. Several others have already pleaded guilty in the case, including former 911 Director Vernon Hacker.
