Judge grants delay in trial of former mayor

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, WA- A Benton County judge has pushed back the trial of the former mayor of Prosser.

Linda Lusk is accused of having sexual contact with a 14-year-old boy. Court administrators had been set to bring in potential jurors on January 24.

Judge Carrie Runge granted the delay following a closed-door meeting requested by Lusk's attorney, who wanted to explain his defense strategy that would justify a delay.

The trial is now scheduled to begin in the first week of March.
