Scarlatos did not say what prompted him to believe more people would be charged, but raised the possibility while arguing for more time to review up to 6 million pages of documents he said prosecutors are turning over as evidence.Scarlatos called reviewing the documents"a herculean task" and said new indictments would create a"moving target."

For more reporting from the Associated Press, see below.A lawyer for Allen Weisselberg, former chief financial officer for the Trump Organization, said he believes the district attorney will issue more indictments in the high-profile case.

"Mr. Weisselberg is separate from the Trump Organization. He is the only individual here whose liberty is at stake," Scarlatos said."What I am concerned about is that he will become collateral damage in a larger fight between the Trump Organization and the DA's office."

Prosecutors said Weisselberg is"no stranger" to many of the documents because they include Trump Organization business records that the executive likely produced or reviewed as part of his job.Judge Juan Manuel Merchan gave both sides until next spring to file motions and responses. He said he'd decide on motions at a July 12, 2022, hearing, the next time Weisselberg is due in court.

Merchan said he expected to set a trial date at that time and would likely schedule it for the end of August or beginning of September next year."The reason I mention it now is that it's on everybody's radar," Merchan said."I don't have an exact date yet."

Weisselberg has pleaded not guilty to charges he collected more than $1.7 million in off-the-books compensation, including apartment rent, car payments and school tuition.Trump's company is also charged in the case, which prosecutors have described as a"sweeping and audacious" tax fraud scheme.

Weisselberg sat quietly next to his lawyers at Monday's brief hearing and didn't speak to reporters on his way to and from court. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, everyone wore masks and the courtroom had clear plastic partitions between various parties.

Trump himself has not been charged with any wrongdoing. He has condemned the case, the first to arise from New York authorities' two-year investigation into the former president's business dealings, as a"political witch hunt."Trump has said his company's actions were standard practice in the business and in no way a crime.

According to the indictment, from 2005 through this year, the Trump Organization and Weisselberg cheated tax authorities by conspiring to pay senior executives off the books by way of lucrative fringe benefits and other means. Read more: Newsweek »
