Sentencing delayed for figure in bid-rigging plot

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A federal judge has agreed to delay a sentencing hearing for a former employee of the Orleans Parish Sheriff's Office for his role in a bid-rigging scheme.

John Sens, a former purchasing director for the sheriff's office, pleaded guilty in March to charges that he rigged bids and took kickbacks from contractors.

Sens was scheduled to be sentenced June 12, but U.S. District Judge Kurt Engelhardt agreed to postpone the hearing until July 3 to accommodate a defense attorney's scheduling conflict.

Prosecutors said Sens had a $25,000 swimming pool installed at his Waveland, Miss., property and received framed artwork worth more than $5,000 plus $30,000 cash for his role in the scheme.
