The federal corruption trial of the former mayor of Niles has been delayed two weeks. Nicholas Blase is accused of taking more than $400,000 in kickbacks.

Blase is 80 years old and retired last month after 47 years in office.

An attorney for Blase says the judge in the case agreed to the delay while lawyers sort out some details of the case.
