Bribery Sentencing Delay For Ex-Officer

Posted: Updated:
Jackson - The sentencing hearing for a former Jackson Police Department narcotics officer who pleaded guilty to bribery has been rescheduled for Dec. 19.
    
Robert Nikita Shegog pleaded guilty July 3 to his role in a scheme to help a man get a reduced sentence in a drug case in exchange for $45,000.
    
He was scheduled for sentencing this week, but prosecutors filed a motion to continue it, saying "there are issues that need to be solved which could impact the sentence of the defendant."
    
The document doesn't describe those issues.
    
U.S. District Judge Henry Wingate entered and order Tuesday rescheduling the hearing.
