Ex-corrections head Epps won’t be sentenced until May

The fate of former Mississippi Department of Corrections Commissioner Chris Epps won’t be known until at least May.

U.S. District Judge Henry Wingate has reset Epps’ sentencing date for May 24-25. Wingate set the sentencing Monday after a status conference last week. Wingate didn’t give a reason Monday in his order. The sentencing has been delayed at least two times.
