NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - The sentencing of two former aides to Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has been moved back.

Bridget Kelly and Bill Baroni were scheduled to be sentenced on Feb. 21 on several corruption and fraud counts.

In an order issued last Friday, the sentencing was moved to March 13.

Kelly and Baroni were convicted in November in an alleged political retaliation plot involving traffic jams at the George Washington Bridge.

They had sought to have the sentencing delayed so they could have more time to review pre-sentencing reports.

Kelly, Christie’s former deputy chief staff, and Baroni, a top Christie appointee to the bridge authority, have appealed their convictions.

Christie wasn’t charged.
