A hearing for a Carson City deputy district attorney indicted by a special grand jury has been postponed until 11 a.m. Aug. 6.

Chief Deputy Anne Langer is accused by a grand jury of intimidating a witness to influence testimony.

The crime is punishable by up to one to five years in prison and a $5,000 fine. Because of the indictment Langer was placed on administrative leave with pay from her $86,418-a-year job.

The grand jury was empaneled March 13 to review allegations by Carson City resident Ron Weddell against several city officials for what he says was a deliberate refusal to prosecute two brothers he claimed tried to run down an employee.
