Delonte West trial postponed

By Washington Post editors

The trial of Cleveland Cavaliers guard Delonte West on weapons charges has been postponed three months until July 21.

Authorities say West was carrying two loaded handguns, a loaded shotgun and an 8 1/2-inch Bowie knife while riding a three-wheel motorcycle on the Capital Beltway in Maryland in September. Police say he was pulled over after cutting off an officer.

West's trial was already postponed once from February until April 26. On Tuesday, a judge granted a request by West's lawyer to put it off again.

West is charged with carrying a dangerous weapon, carrying a handgun, transporting a handgun, reckless driving and negligent driving.

The charges are all misdemeanors. Each weapons count carries a penalty of up to three years in prison.
