U.S. District Judge Cathy Bissoon on Friday granted former Pittsburgh police Chief Nate Harper's motion for an extra 60 days to prepare his pretrial motions. She extended the deadline to July 8.

A federal grand jury in March indicted Harper on charges of failing to file federal income taxes and skimming public money for personal use. Robert Leight, one of his attorneys, has said Harper intends to plead guilty.

At an April status conference, Leight told Bissoon they would be asking for extra time to prepare the motions. Federal prosecutors didn't object.
