Sentencing has been postponed for a former official who was hailed for helping two people escape the World Trade Center on 9/11. He was later convicted of taking bribes related to the terrorist attacks' aftermath.
Mark Jakubek (jah-KHOH'-behk) had been set for sentencing Monday on the second of two bribe-taking convictions. The sentencing is now scheduled for Friday.
The former Port Authority of New York and New Jersey official was convicted in 2009 on charges of taking bribes to let a company overbill for work on the trade center cleanup and other projects. He has challenged his conviction.
The case had arisen after Jakubek spent about a year in prison. In that case, he pleaded guilty to taking kickbacks to speed payments to contractors whose bills were lost in the attacks.
