DALLAS, Texas (1080 KRLD) –  A federal judge has delayed the Dallas County corruption trial against Commissioner John Wiley Price by more than a year.

Last week, lawyers for Price, his administrative assistant Dapheny Fain and two consultants asked for a continuance claiming they could not possibly be ready for trial in a few weeks.

Nobody expected that to happen – but the length of the delay granted by Judge Barbara M.G. Lynn is significant.

The trial is now scheduled for January of 2016….16-months from now. It had been originally scheduled for September 2014.

Price and three others were indicted in a massive 13-count case that alleges bribery and tax fraud in a scheme to rig contracts.

Last week the judge said Price and Fain could talk with one another and any county workers who could become witnesses so that the county can function. Normally in a criminal case that can’t happen.
