Former Judge Bridget McCafferty waits to hear if she will get new trial

Former Judge Bridget McCafferty had a hearing Monday morning to request a new trial; however, a decision won't be made today.

The former Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Judge was convicted in March on ten counts of corruption-related charges.

The Federal Judge who will decide on whether or not McCafferty will be granted a new trial, has taken the case under advisement and will issue a decision at a later date.

At this time, McCafferty is scheduled to be sentenced later this month.
