A lawyer for former Vicksburg Mayor Paul Winfield has asked a federal judge to postpone his trial.

The request was made because negotiations are ongoing with prosecutors to resolve the case.

The trial is scheduled for August 5.

Winfield is charged in U.S. District Court in Jackson with seeking $10,000 in cash in exchange for a city contract.

He has pleaded not guilty.
