OXFORD – U.S. District Judge Sharion Aycock on Wednesday granted a new trial date for indicted FBI agent Hal Neilson.
Earlier this week, Neilson’s attorney asked for at least eight months more for Neilson to recover from heart bypass surgery and participate in review of thousands of documents submitted by prosecutors.
Neilson, who pleaded not guilty earlier this month, is accused of lying and falsifying reports about a financial interest in the Oxford FBI Building.
Aycock set a new trial date for Aug. 16 in Aberdeen.
