BROWNSVILLE (AP) - An Austin personal injury attorney will have to wait another day to learn his sentence for his federal racketeering conviction in Brownsville.

After nearly five hours of testimony Monday evening, U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen said he would hear a bit more before recessing. He said, however, that Marc Rosenthal's sentencing wouldn't come until Tuesday afternoon.

A jury in Corpus Christi convicted Rosenthal in February on 13 counts that included racketeering conspiracy, mail fraud and tampering with a proceeding. The verdict came after a four-week trial.

Prosecutors alleged Rosenthal was one of the lawyers who bribed former state District Judge Abel Limas for favorable decisions. Limas also had a deal to go to work for Rosenthal's firm after leaving the bench.

Limas was arrested in 2011.
