Attorneys for longtime Trump confidant Roger Stone asked a federal judge Thursday to postpone his scheduled Feb. 6 sentencing by at least one month, saying he needs more time to collect financial and other records needed for a sentencing advisory report.
Stone, 67, was convicted by a federal jury in Washington last month of one count of tampering with a witness and six counts of lying to Congress about his efforts to learn of hacked Democratic emails during the 2016 U.S. presidential election.
Stone faces a maximum 50 years in prison for the charges, although a first offender would face far less time under federal sentencing guidelines. Stone was charged as part of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III's investigation into Russian election interference.
