BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - A federal judge has granted the government's request to delay sentencing for former Alabama two-year college Chancellor Roy Johnson.
Johnson was set to be sentenced on Feb. 26, but prosecutors say he has more information that could yield new indictments in the ongoing investigation into corruption in the system.
His new sentencing date is July 1 before U.S. District Judge Karon Bowdre.
Johnson faces more than 25 years in prison and prosecutors said they won't be able to adequately judge his level of assistance until the investigation winds down.
The two-year college investigation has produced more than a dozen guilty pleas, convictions and indictments.
Johnson's testimony against former State Sen. E.B. McClain led to a conviction in January and he testified in the second trial of state Rep. Sue Schmitz last week.
