The criminal trial of Washington Redskins safety Sean Taylor was continued for a seventh time yesterday, this time until July 10 in Miami.

Judge Leonard E. Glick, who took over the case when Judge Mary Barzee was transferred to the civil division last month, granted the request for continuance from the state’s attorney office, which recently changed prosecutors. The defense agreed to the continuance.

In 2002, Glick put Jose Canseco on three years’ probation and ordered him to perform 250 hours of community service and attend anger management classes after the former slugger pleaded guilty to three assault charges to avoid going to prison. Canseco had faced up to 31 years in prison.

The 23-year-old Taylor, Washington’s first-round pick in 2004 draft and a two-year starter, could be sentenced to up to 46 years in prison on three felony assault charges and a misdemeanor battery charge stemming from an incident June 1 in Miami.

The trial was first scheduled for Sept. 12 and had been continued to Oct. 24, Jan. 17, March 20, April 10, April 17 and then to yesterday. Glick is due to move to another division July 1, so Taylor might end up with a third judge before finally going to trial.
