Prison bribery sentencing delayed till Friday

Sentencing has been delayed until Friday for a former state senator who pleaded guilty to paying bribes for prison contracts.
U.S. District Judge Henry T. Wingate had been ready Monday to sentence Irb Benjamin of Madison, but rescheduled the hearing last week.
Lawyer Joseph Hollomon asked for the delay, saying Benjamin needs more time to prepare and “attend to medical issues.”
