Rubashkin trial delayed again


WATERLOO (KWWL) -- The trial for Sholom Rubashkin has hit another delay.

Rubashkin, the former CEO of Agriprocessors, was scheduled to be in court at 10:30 Friday morning to resume the trial, but court administration says he was not released from the hospital in time to make it.

The trial is scheduled to begin again at 1:00 Friday afternoon.

The trial was delayed on Monday and Tuesday because Rubashkin was being treated for a skin infection.

The trial was again delayed on Wednesday and Thursday for a Jewish holiday.

Rubashkin is facing 83 counts of child labor violations.

He is scheduled to be sentenced on May 27th after being convicted on federal financial fraud charges.
