Sgt. Tom Lovejoy had been scheduled to go to trial today in San Tan Justice Court in Chandler. However, a judge delayed the trial earlier this week, and no new date has been set, according to Lovejoy's wife, Carolynn.

Lovejoy was the head of Chandler's K-9 unit when he left his dog, Bandit, in the back of his squad vehicle for about 13 hours last August. He was later arrested by the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office and charged with animal cruelty, a misdemeanor.

Lovejoy was removed from the special unit and now works on patrol.
