The trial of a former Frederick County Board of County Commissioners president accused of prostitution has been postponed, according to court records.
Blaine Young was charged with four counts of prostitution in Anne Arundel County after a Feb. 18 sting at a hotel near Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport.
Police have said Young responded to an ad on a website commonly used to arrange escort services. He gave an undercover officer $60 in exchange for sex, according to officials.
His trial was originally scheduled for Monday of next week, but has been postponed until Aug. 23, court records show.
Young’s attorney, Peter Sean O’Neill, said Wednesday that Young will plead not guilty.
Young was a Frederick County commissioner from 2010 to 2014, then ran unsuccessfully for county executive.
