TROY, N.Y. -- Despite efforts by his lawyers to delay it, former senate majority leader Joe Bruno will be sentenced next month as planned.
Bruno had asked a federal judge to delay the sentencing until the Supreme Court rules on a challenge to the federal Honest Services Law.
Bruno was convicted back in December on eight counts of abusing his power in the senate.
When he's sentenced May 6th, Bruno faces several months in prison.
