Sentencing for Bridge-Gate defendants pushed back 2 days to March 15
The sentencing for two ex-allies of Gov. Chris Christie found guilty in the Bridge-Gate lane-closing case has been pushed back two days.
Bridget Kelly and Bill Baroni were scheduled to be sentenced on March 13, but a defense lawyer had a scheduling conflict. The sentencing is now scheduled for March 15.
Kelly was Christie's deputy chief of staff in 2013 and Baroni was a top Christie appointee to Port Authority.
They were convicted in November of causing traffic jams near the bridge, allegedly to retaliate against the Democratic mayor of Fort Lee who didn't endorse Christie's 2013 re-election campaign.
Both have appealed their convictions.
They face maximum combined sentences of decades in prison but are expected to receive far less time.
A third person, former- Port Authority official David Wildstein, pleaded guilty in the case as part of a plea deal to testify for the prosecutor. He has not been sentenced yet either.
