URBANA, Ill. (WEEK) -- -

A judge has agreed to move the date of former Rep. Aaron Schock's corruption trial to next year. 

In a filing Friday, Judge Colin Bruce of Urbana reset the Peoria Republican's trial date to January 22, 2018. The trial was previously set to begin July 10. This comes after Schock's attorneys had requested a delay on Wednesday due to several pending motions. 

Schock was indicted in November 2016 on 24 counts related to  his spending practices while in office. Schock resigned from Congress amid controversy in 2015.
