Delay sought for Johnson's sentence in 2-year case

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Federal prosecutors have asked to delay former 2-year chancellor Roy Johnson's sentencing hearing.

They asked a judge to put off the sentencing Wednesday, saying Johnson hasn't finished telling prosecutors all he knows about the college corruption scandal.

Johnson has been cooperating with the government since he pleaded guilty in April to receiving nearly $1 million in kickbacks for himself, his family and friends while working in the college system.

His testimony against former State Sen. E.B. McClain of Midfield led to a conviction in January and he is slated to testify this week against State Rep. Sue Schmitz.

Both legislators were accused of getting thousands of dollars in two-year college funds for little or no work.
