Hustis Case Delayed a Fifth Time

Rescheduled for June 3

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 fifth time, until June 3.

According to documents filed in federal court on May 6, Benjamin Gold, who represents the former Cold Spring village trustee and mayoral candidate, is talking with federal prosecutors about “possible disposition of this case without trial.”

The judge released Hustis, 36, in December on $150,000 bond but placed him under home detention with a monitoring device.

One thought on “Hustis Case Delayed a Fifth Time

  1. Makes you wonder how much is fact and how much is fiction from the first story in the news. This whole thing has the earmarks and reeks of entrapment and a set-up by the FBI and others.
