Turner's Sentencing Postponed

Sentencing for a Kentucky senator will be pushed back so he can finish the current legislative session.

Court officials say Senator Johnny Ray Turner will be sentenced on April 16th now after a motion to continue the court appearance. The court date was originally March 27th.

The case stems from Turner's 2000 state senate bid.

Prosecutors agreed to drop a felony conspiracy charge in exchange for the guilty plea. Turner's Attorney says the agreement means Turner acknowledges that he didn't properly manage his campaign, but that he didn't do anything intentionally wrong.
