Cooper attorney asks for continuance

Former Rep. Nathan Cooper's sentencing on immigration fraud may be a few days later than scheduled.
Citing a trial conflict, Cooper's attorney, Joel Schwartz, filed a motion for a continuance today in U. S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri. Schwartz asked that the sentencing be pushed back from Oct. 19 to Oct. 23.
Cooper, a Cape Girardeau Republican, resigned his seat after pleading guilty in August.
