Detroit Trial In Toledo Point-Shaving Case Delayed

Posted: Updated:

DETROIT (AP) - A point-shaving trial in Detroit involving alleged crimes by University of Toledo athletes has been pushed into 2014.

The reason for the latest delay? Detroit-area businessman Ghazi Manni has a new lawyer, and he needs time to prepare.

Manni is accused of bribing Toledo players from 2004 to 2006 while placing bets on games. Former Toledo basketball players Anton Currie, Kashif Payne and Keith Triplett are facing trial along with Manni.

The October trial has been moved to Feb. 18 in Detroit federal court. The case was filed nearly five years ago.

Four more former Rockets and businessman Mitchell "Ed" Karam have pleaded guilty. They have not received their sentences.
