Testimony continues this afternoon, in the federal corruption trial of George Grace.

The former mayor of St. Gabriel has been on the witness stand all week.

Friday morning, the judge decided to give Grace time  to consult with his lawyers, even though cross-examination by the prosecution isn't over.

Grace is charged with bribery, extortion, racketeering and fraud in a FBI sting called "Operation Blighted Officials".
