Man misses pretrialin Traficant case
CLEVELAND -- Trial for the Virginia engineer accused of taking part in a scheme to bribe U.S. Rep. James A. Traficant Jr. has been reset to Nov. 12.
Richard E. Detore failed to show for his final pretrial session Tuesday afternoon, and U.S. District Judge Lesley Brooks Wells reset the trial, which had been scheduled for July 29. Details of what happened were not immediately available.
Last week, Detore, 42, failed to show for a final pretrial, saying he blacked out and was hospitalized, and the judge rescheduled it. Traficant, of Poland, D-17th, was found guilty of racketeering, bribery and tax evasion and will be sentenced July 30.
Police impersonator
SHARON, Pa. -- Police are looking for a man who impersonated a police officer and stopped a motorist on North Water Avenue.
The driver, a 48-year-old Hubbard woman, told authorities she was driving on Water Avenue around 12:30 a.m. Tuesday when a vehicle with a blue flashing light pulled up behind her. She stopped, thinking it was a police officer, and said a young white man wearing a white T-shirt and black vest, identifying himself as an undercover detective, asked to see her license and insurance card and then advised her to drive more carefully.
Police in Pennsylvania use red, white and blue flashing lights. Only ambulances, volunteer firefighters and people handling dogs used to track humans use blue flashing lights, and motorists are not required to stop for them, police said.
