Judge Postpones Ex-Guard's Trial in Prison Smuggling Case

Posted: Jun 07, 2018 3:46 AM Updated:

DOVER, Del. (AP)- A federal judge has postponed the trial of a former Delaware prison guard charged with accepting bribes to smuggle contraband to inmates.

Lorraine Mosley's trial was scheduled for later this month, but the judge on Wednesday postponed the trial until September after conferring with attorneys.

Mosley is accused of taking a $100 bribe to smuggle a cellphone to an inmate at the state women's prison. She is charged with conspiracy and "extortion under color of official right."

Mosley's public defenders have argued that the allegations against her do not qualify as an "official act" because the alleged receipt of a cellphone in exchange for money is not a formal exercise of governmental power under federal law.

Two former men's prison guards were recently sentenced to federal prison on similar charges.

    Locals in Salisbury React To Trump's National Emergency

    President Donald Trump declared a national emergency Friday after congress refused to completely fund his wall at the  U.S.-Mexico border. Congress approved a spending deal to avoid a shutdown, which did not include the $5.7 billion President Trump requested in border wall funding.

    Salisbury University Political Science Chair Adam Hoffman says the move may result in severe push back from democratic congressional leaders, and may even result in legal action.
