Pretrial court session for Arizona AG postponed

PHOENIX (AP) - A court proceeding on a misdemeanor hit & run charge against Arizona Attorney Tom Horne is being postponed.

Horne's attorney Michael Kimerer requested and obtained a delay in a pretrial conference that was scheduled Wednesday in Phoenix Municipal Court.

Kimerer's request says pretrial fact-finding has been extensive and that he needs more time to evaluate the evidence and decide whether more investigation is warranted.

Horne is accused of not leaving a note after he tapped another vehicle while driving a borrowed car earlier this year.

The accident was observed by FBI agents who conducted a campaign-finance investigation of Horne.

Horne says he didn't think the other vehicle was damaged. He has pleaded not guilty.

If convicted, he could be sentenced to up to 30 days in jail and fined up to $500.
