Former U.S. Rep. Mel Reynolds' Misdemeanor Tax Trial Gets Pushed Back

Former U.S. Congressman Mel Reynolds will get more time to prepare for his misdemeanor tax case.

Over a month ago, Reynolds fired his attorney and decided to represent himself. His trial was scheduled to begin in less than two weeks, but Reynolds told the judge he needs more time to prepare for the case because it’s challenging to do so from jail.

Reynolds was supposed to go to trial June 20th, but that’s being pushed back.

He’s accused of failing to file federal tax returns from 2009 to 2012.
