Delay sought in Alabama chancellor case

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Federal prosecutors want to again delay the sentencing of the former chancellor of Alabama's two-year college system.

Johnson, who pleaded guilty in 2008 to bribery and conspiracy charges, was supposed to be sentenced June 22. His sentencing has
been delayed several times as he cooperated with federal prosecutors in criminal trials related to the criminal probe of the two-year college system.

Now the U.S. Attorney's Office wants to reschedule the sentencing until after the trial of Tuscaloosa contractor Roger Taylor, who is accused of bribing and conspiring with Johnson.

Johnson pleaded guilty in 2008 to charges that included bribery and conspiracy. Johnson was chancellor from 2002 to 2006.
