HARRISBURG - A Dauphin County judge rescheduled to Dec. 7 the corruption trial for Rep. Vanessa Brown, one of the six Philadelphia Democrats snared in the now infamous bribery sting.

Judge Scott Evans set the date during a brief hearing on Monday.

Earlier this year, Brown had abruptly abandoned plans to plead guilty and asked to go to trial, but said she needed time to get a new lawyer.

Four others have already pleaded guilty in the case, a prosecution that was aborted by Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane and resurrected by Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams.

The final defendant, Rep. Louise Bishop, is also fighting the charges
