According to records from the Indian River County Court, F. James Germano’s trial was postponed yet again from June 2 until July 28.
Germano - who stands accused of solicitation of a prostitute, a misdemeanor, and a felony of committing a lewd, lascivious or indecent act - was in court on June 2 but Judge Robert L. Pegg agreed to postpone it more than a month because Germano and his attorney were not ready for trial.
The now 85-year-old Germano was initially charged with soliciting a 12-yr-old boy for sex while the youngster was waiting at a bus stop near his Vero Beach home. The boy called his mother, and she came to the bus stop before Germano had left so he allegedly propositioned her too.
The charges of procuring a person under the age of 18 years old, a felony, and two counts of misdemeanor stalking were dropped by the prosecutor. Germano was later re-arrested on the lewd and lascivious behavior charge. The former North Greenbush political boss remains free on $65,000 bail.
This is third time his trial was postponed - once from April to May and then again from May to this month.
