(Newser) – Bernard Kerik has more time in jail to look forward to. The former NYPD commissioner’s federal corruption trial was postponed today, with no new date set for jury selection. Kerik’s trial was supposed to begin on Monday, but a delay was widely expected after a judge revoked his bail on Tuesday for leaking information about his case to the media, the Journal News reports.
