Delay In Sheri Sangji Criminal Trial

Ongoing plea negotiations in the Sheri Sangji case have caused a third delay in the arraignment of UCLA professor Patrick Harran and the UC Board of Regents. Judge Shelly Torrealba granted the delay. The new arraignment date is June 7th.

Harran and the Board of Regents are accused of “willfully violating occupational health and safety standards.” Sangji’s sister, Naveen Sangji, expressed disappointment at the delay, saying “It has already been four months since the charges were filed, and we would like to see the matter proceed.”
