TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - A new sentencing date has been set for former U.S. Rep. Rick Renzi for his federal convictions last month on public corruption, money laundering and other charges.

U.S. District Judge David Bury has reset Renzi's sentencing date for Oct. 28.

The new sentencing date also applies to Renzi's co-defendant in the case.

Renzi was accused of using his office for personal financial gain and looting a family insurance business to help pay for his 2002 campaign.

He represented Arizona's sprawling 1st Congressional District from early 2003 until early 2009.

Renzi chose not to run for re-election in 2008 while facing the federal indictment.

His lawyers have asked Bury to reverse Renzi's convictions and argued that the evidence wasn't enough to back up the jury's verdict.
