Fossella's DWI Court Date Delayed
Lucky for Rep. Vito Fossella (R-N.Y.), this town will likely be empty by the time he goes to court to challenge drunk driving charges.
Fossella's court date was originally scheduled for June 27 but it has been postponed until July or August, according to Fossella defense attorney Barry Pollack. Pollack cites a number of reasons for the delay, including a typo in his subpoeana to the manufacturer of the breathalizer machine that recorded the congressman's blood alcohol level at twice Virginia's legal limit.
Fossella, who is retiring because of his DWI arrest and the revelation of a secret mistress and child, has hired two famous private investigators to help him beat the rap -- the same private eyes who worked for O.J. Simpson, Patty Hearst and John Gotti.
Fossella faces a mandatory five days in jail if he's convicted.
