Judge: No Swift Ruling on Craig Request

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A judge considering Idaho Sen. Larry Craig's request to 
withdraw his guilty plea in an airport sex sting said Wednesday he 
probably wouldn't rule in the case until late next week, well past Craig's 
self-imposed deadline to resign.

Hennepin County Judge Charles Porter heard arguments from Craig's 
attorneys and the prosecutor in the case then said he wouldn't rule 
immediately.

Craig said earlier he planned to resign Sept. 30, then left the door open 
to stay if he could successfully withdraw his plea.

After the hearing, Craig's lead attorney Billy Martin declined to address 
whether Craig would resign. He said the senator planned a statement later 
Wednesday from Washington.

Martin also said there was nothing unusual about Craig staying in 
Washington instead of attending the hearing. The attorney said it's rare 
for him to bring a client to such proceedings.

During the hearing, Martin acknowledged the difficulty in getting the plea 
withdrawn, saying it is ``near impossible, and it should be.'' But he said 
Craig's conduct was not criminal.

Prosecutor Christopher Renz said the timing of Craig's decision to 
withdraw his guilty plea was political. Craig was arrested in a 
Minneapolis airport bathroom June 11, then entered his plea Aug. 8. Craig 
said he panicked in entering his plea.

``He sat and was able to think about it a thousand miles away at his 
apartment on the Potomac. He called me about it'' and could have called 
others if he needed advice, Renz said.
