The arraignment for former Orange County Sheriff Mike Carona on federal corruption charges has been postponed until later this month.Carona, his wife Deborah, and alleged mistress Debra Hoffman have already pleaded not guilty to a previous indictment in the case. Last week, prosecutors filed transcripts with the court alleging Carona was caught on a wiretap last summer plotting with a former assistant sheriff to lie to a grand jury.

The two reportedly discussed the need to get their stories straight.

Carona's attorneys are trying to get the tapes barred from the trial.
