Hingle's request for prison delay denied

New Orleans, La. -

A federal judge has denied a request by former Plaquemines Parish Sheriff Jiff Hingle to delay his reporting date to federal prison.

Hingle asked Judge Sarah Vance to extend his reporting date from September 16 to October 16.

He also asked to be sent to a prison near his home, such as Pensacola or Montgomery. Judge Vance denied both requests.

So Hingle will report to a South Carolina prison next month to begin his four-year sentence.
