The federal trial for former Warner Robins council member John Williams is scheduled to start Monday but could be delayed.
According to court documents, Williams attorney filed a motion to delay the trial because Williams is sick.
It says he has been hospitalized since April 13 with several serious illnesses, the motion says, and they do not know when he will be released.
Williams attorney Tina Hunt wrote, "In this case, the health of Mr. Williams and his ability to participate in the defense of his case outweighs the interests of the public in a speedy trial."
A judge will hear the argument this afternoon at 3:30 p.m.
Williams is accused of making money off the purchase of a city truck, lying to federal officers about it and tampering with a witness.
Lorra Lynch Jones will be at that hearing, and will tell you the outcome on 13wmaz.com and on Eyewitness News.
