Attorneys seek third delay for Stan Curtis court hearing

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky.  (WDRB) -- Attorneys for USA Harvest charity founder Stan Curtis are asking a federal judge, for a third time, to delay a court hearing because of Curtis' illness.  His arraignment for federal fraud charges is scheduled for Thursday.

The attorneys say Curtis remains "too ill" to attend the hearing.

A motion filed Monday says "Curtis is in a nursing home, and his condition remains tenuous."  It continues to say his attorneys "believe that Mr. Curtis is too ill to attend the hearing, and that he is not mentally competent to enter a plea at this time."

The motion asks for a continuance, but it does not specify a time or date. 

A grand jury formally indicted Curtis earlier this month on charges that included mail fraud, money laundering and filing false tax returns.  He is accused of stealing donations from the organization between 2005 and 2007.
