The federal court trial of an El Paso County state judge accused of offering to trade sex and cash for help with felony cases has been postponed until January.

State District Judge Manuel Barraza faces four counts, including mail fraud, wire fraud and lying to a federal agent. His trial was set to start Monday, but was delayed until Jan. 19 after his defense lawyers argued that they haven’t had enough time to review evidence turned over by the government less than two weeks ago.
