State representative's political practices trial delayed 1 month


BOZEMAN, Montana — The political practices trial against state Rep. Art Wittich has been delayed one month to account for his defense attorney's schedule.

Wittich's attorney, Quentin Rhoades of Missoula, requested the Feb. 22 trial be rescheduled because he will be lead defense attorney in a homicide trial earlier that month.

The Bozeman Daily Chronicle reports ( ) that the trial is now scheduled for March 28.

The Bozeman Republican is accused of failing to report contributions from the conservative nonprofit Western Tradition Partnership during his 2010 campaign.
