Musto Trial Delayed


WILKES-BARRE — Former state senator Ray Musto of Luzerne County received another delay in his scheduled trial on public corruption charges.

One day after doctors testified at a hearing, a federal judge ruled Tuesday afternoon that Musto is mentally incompetent to stand trial.

The judge ruled Musto, 84, must report to a facility for treatment for up to four months, or until his condition improves.

The former lawmaker from the Pittston area had been scheduled to go on trial next week on charges he accepted kickbacks while in office.
