Sentencing Delayed Again In Egg Scandal
Updated: Tuesday, July 16 2013, 02:19 PM CDT
IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) -- Sentencing is delayed a second time for a former manager of Iowa egg farms who played a role in the 2010 salmonella outbreak.
U.S. District Judge Mark Bennett issued an order Monday delaying Tony Wasmund's sentencing on a bribery charge from Aug. 16 to Jan. 17.
Wasmund was a supervisor under Jack DeCoster, whose Iowa operations were blamed for the outbreak that caused the recall of 550 million eggs.
He's pleaded guilty to authorizing another employee to use $300 in petty cash to bribe a U.S. Department of Agriculture inspector to allow sales of shell eggs that failed to meet federal standards.
Legal observers have speculated that prosecutors hope Wasmund will implicate higher-ups. Attorneys for DeCoster and his son have said they are potential targets of the grand jury investigation.
