From the Daily News:
Manhattan federal prosecutors disclosed Friday that they are in plea discussions with a John Liu fund-raiser under arrest for allegedly funneling illegal contributions to the controller’s campaign.
Prosecutor Brian Jacobs said in court papers that the plea negotiations with an attorney for Xing Wu Pan were ongoing as he asked for a new court date in the case.
Jacobs said in the court filing that the discussions regarding a possible disposition of the case with Pan’s lawyer, Julia Gatto, have not been completed.
Federal Magistrate Judge Theodore Katz set the case down for Jan. 17.
