Wince was tried for these charges in November, but the jury was unable to reach a verdict. The previous retrial had been scheduled for Feb. 25.
He also was due for sentencing after previously pleading guilty to resisting and obstructing police, but that also was postponed until the retrial.
Wince's attorney, James Fifelski, said the postponement of the retrial was so he could have more time to examine the transcripts from the previous trial.
"We think he has a very strong defense so we're going to vigorously defend him," Fifelski said.
