UTICA, N.Y. – The case of Congressman Brindisi's former staffer John Stemen, who is accused of paying an underaged girl for sex, has been adjourned for two weeks.

Stemen is charged with patronizing a prostitute for allegedly paying an underage girl $200 to have sex with him.

The last hearing was delayed as the judge searched for a missing file. The case was adjourned again Wednesday until 9 a.m. on Nov. 13.

Stemen no longer works for Brindisi’s office.
