HARRISBURG - A Dauphin County judge has postponed the second trial of disgraced Pennsylvania political power broker Mike Veon until next year.

Judge Bruce Bratton issued an order Tuesday moving the trial date from June 1 to Feb. 6, 2012.

Veon, the former Democratic whip in the state House of Representatives, was convicted last year in Pennsylvania's legislative-corruption scandal on multiple charges involving the use of taxpayers' money for campaign work and is serving a six- to 14-year prison term. A former aide, Annamarie Perretta-Rosepink, was also convicted and was sentenced to three to six months in county jail.

Veon and Perretta-Rosepink are now awaiting trial on charges of misusing grant money distributed to a nonprofit organization that he ran in his Beaver County district. - AP
