Sue Smitz Fraud Trial Postponed

The trial of State Representative Sue Schmitz is delayed until next week. Prosecutors rested their fraud case against the 63-year-old Schmitz Tuesday.

Defense attorneys began presenting their case this morning, when the judge called a meeting. But, soon after, court was adjourned. Attorneys and court officials would not elaborate on the reason for the delay, other than to say it was unexpected circumstances.

Schmitz, a Democrat, is accused of using her political influence to get a job with a program that helps troubled teenagers. It's alleged she did "no" to little work.
