NEWARK - (AP) - A hearing to determine whether a convicted former deputy mayor finally has to go to prison has been postponed.

Leona Beldini had been scheduled to appear in U.S. District Court in Newark Monday to argue that she should get a new trial.

The former deputy mayor of Jersey City was convicted of bribery two years ago in connection with a massive federal sting. She has been free on bail while the case is on appeal.

Beldini was finally ordered to report to jail last week, but that was pushed back to this weekend so a judge could hear the latest argument.

She was convicted of taking money from a federal informant who was posing as a corrupt developer. Beldini claims the informant made improper remarks in his trial testimony.
