The prosecution of Charles E. “Chuck” Hustis III, who was arrested by the FBI in Cold Spring on Dec. 16 and accused of soliciting a minor for sex, has been delayed a second time, until March 11.
According to documents filed in federal court in January, Benjamin Gold, who represents the former Cold Spring village trustee and mayoral candidate, is talking with federal prosecutors about “possible disposition of the case without trial.”
The judge released Hustis, 36, in December on $150,000 bond but placed him under home detention with a monitoring device.
