DALLAS (AP) — A judge has delayed the trial for a Dallas-area doctor charged with running a massive Medicare and Medicaid fraud scheme until the middle of next year.

Judge Sam Lindsay's order Wednesday sets trial for Dr. Jacques Roy for June 10, 2013. He says both prosecutors and attorneys for the defendants in the case support a delay.

Roy's attorney, Ali Fazel, said last month that he has not yet been able to examine all of the evidence in the case.

Roy is accused of signing off on false paperwork in a scheme alleged to have reached more than $375 million.

One of his co-defendants, Cyprian Akamnonu has agreed to plead guilty.
