HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

A scheduling conflict forced U.S. Attorney Ruth Morgan to request a sentencing delay for Sean Anthony until Nov. 2.

Anthony pleaded guilty to being at the center of a bribery scheme involving the Harrison County Utility Authority earlier in 2015. He admitted to paying former county supervisor Kim Savant $1,500 a month for two years in exchange for his vote to award contracts to his company, S.H. Anthony.

Savant pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit bribery in December of 2014. He is scheduled to be sentenced Oct.1.
