Scott Walker gets two month delay in his sentencing

Scott Walker was supposed to find out his sentencing next Tuesday after pleading guilty to fraud charges in the DMR corruption case. But this morning, Walker knows he's gotten a bit of a reprieve.  

A federal judge agreed to move the sentencing to July 23, 2014 because the prosecution and the defense were still discussing how to resolve sentencing issues.  

The man who was once less than 100 votes away from being Mayor of Ocean Springs admitted working with his father, former DMR director, Dr. Bill Walker to sell land they owned to the state, through the Land Trust for the Mississippi Coastal Plain.

He also admitted working with former D'Iberville City manager Michael Janus to defraud D'Iberville out of $180,000 dollars. Janus has already pleaded guilty to that charge.

As part of the plea deal, eight other felony charges against Scott Walker have been dropped. Scott Walker could spend 15 years in jail for the fraud charges.
