Eddie Tipton's new trial delayed until 2017

Insider BuzzInsider Buzz: Eddie Tipton's new trial delayed until 2017

DES MOINES, Iowa — The second trial for a former lottery official accused of fixing jackpots in five states will be postponed until next year.

An Iowa prosecutor and Eddie Tipton's attorney told a judge Wednesday they've agreed to a Feb. 13 trial date. The judge hasn't yet set a location for the trial.

The former information security director for the Multi-State Lottery Association (MUSL) was convicted last year of fraud for attempting to rig a 2010 Iowa Hot Lotto drawing. He's appealing.

After his conviction, Tipton was charged with ongoing criminal conduct and money laundering tied to drawings in four other states.

The attorneys argued Wednesday over testimony expected from witnesses including Tipton's brother Tommy Tipton and an Eddie Tipton friend, Robert Rhodes. The Texas men also face ongoing criminal conduct charges in Iowa.

    I'm surprised HBO didn't make this into a documentary yet.  If they did, I'm sure Tipton would be portrayed as a victim.

              Judging from the last three WI Supercash drawings...I think he's in Wisconsin.

                    But but but there's a bunch of people here that say it is a conspiracy theory that the lottery  can be rigged.  Come on people this is just a "simple math issue"

                      None. He's still out on bond until his sentencing in September.

                        It is common for both civil and criminal trials to be postponed a couple of times at least.
