Burt's attorney's ask for new judge

Posted:

Former State Representative Kerry Burt was in court Friday facing charges he lied about his address to get cheaper tuition for his kids at Price Lab School in Cedar Falls.

Burt had a pre-trial hearing in Black Hawk County court. He is accused of falsifying records to get a cheaper tuition rate. Burt's attorney's asked for a new judge. That motion was denied.

Another person accused of similar charges was scheduled to be sentenced today. Sentencing for Stephanie Hovey has been pushed back.

She pleaded guilty to charges in January.

No new sentencing date has been set.

Burt's trial is scheduled to begin on Tuesday.
