American lifestyle queen Martha Stewart has won a three-week delay in her sentencing, while her lawyers make a bid to get her a new trial.

Stewart will head back to court on 8 July (04) to find out if she'll be going to jail or facing a new trial, according to American news show CELEBRITY Justice.

Stewart's lawyers plan to argue their client's trial was unfairly affected by the alleged perjury of Secret Service expert Larry Stewart, who is accused of lying eight times on the witness stand.

Stewart was convicted of lying to investigators about why she sold her shares of the stock in 2001.
