The legal fate of Faisal Shahzad, the confessed Times Square car bomb plotter, remained unclear this week.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Theodore H. Katz in Manhattan postponed a preliminary hearing that had been set for earlier this week on Tuesday, the deadline for the government to file an indictment or possibly go for a criminal information, which is normally issued when a defendant plans to plead guilty, court records show.

The judge granted a 20-day continuance on the case, which the prosecution had requested and the defense agreed to , according to the New York Times. Under that arrangement, Shahzad waived his right to be charged in an indictment or information for the time being.
