WASHINGTON — The sentencing for convicted bid-rigger David Rubin, currently scheduled for Dec. 17, may be delayed until January at the request of his defense team.

Rubin, who founded CDR Financial Products and pleaded guilty in December 2011 for his role in a scheme to rig bids for municipal bond investment contracts, has had his sentencing date pushed back multiple times already from an original date of April 27, 2012. In a letter to Judge Kimba Wood at the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York in Manhattan, Bradley Simon of Simon & Partners LLP said he and other attorneys for Rubin need more time to review the pre-sentence report, which they received only last week.
