NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (AP) - A federal bankruptcy judge has ordered a former Virginia lawmaker and his wife to revise a plan to repay some of their creditors.
The Daily Press reports that the bankruptcy trustee objected to former Delegate Phil Hamilton and his wife Kim's repayment plan. The trustee's filing says the plan is underfunded and won't pay out as proposed.
Bankruptcy Judge Frank J. Santoro rejected the plan on Thursday and gave the Hamiltons 21 days to submit a revised plan.
The Hamiltons filed for Chapter 13 bankruptcy in February. They reported that they owe creditors nearly $600,000.
A federal jury convicted Phil Hamilton on bribery and extortion charges in May. His sentencing is set for Aug.12.
