The corruption trial of State Sen. LeAnna M. Washington could start in October or November, a Montgomery County Court judge said Tuesday.
Judge Steven T. O'Neill announced the tentative time frame during a pretrial conference. He also said that oral arguments for a change-of-venue motion would take place on Aug. 28.
Last month, Washington requested that her trial be moved from Montgomery County to Philadelphia, since most of the people and activities involved in the case were in Philadelphia. State prosecutors want the trial to remain in Montgomery County, where, they say, her Roslyn office served as "a hiding place for some of [the] defendant's political activities."
