Judge sets May 20 trial date for Marion Christopher Barry

At a hearing Friday in D.C. Superior Court, a judge set a trial date of May 20. Prosecutors also offered Barry, the son of former District of Columbia mayor Marion Barry, a plea deal. They said they would dismiss a simple assault charge if Barry pleads guilty to the misdemeanor charges of attempted threats and destruction of property.

The younger Barry is running for his late father's D.C. Council seat. He has apologized for the bank incident and pledged to remain in the race.
