WILKES-BARRE, Pa. (AP) - A former towing contractor has been granted a delay for health reasons in beginning his federal prison sentence on fraud, firearms and tax convictions in connection with his exclusive contract with a northeastern Pennsylvania city.

Forty-five-year-old Leo Glodzik III had been expected to report to prison Monday in New Jersey to begin serving a 2½-year sentence. He pleaded guilty in April to mail fraud, being a felon in possession of a firearm and filing false tax returns related to his contract with Wilkes-Barre from 2005 to 2013.

Glodzik’s attorney said last week that a pre-incarceration screening turned up masses that a doctor ordered removed and biopsied to rule out cancer. A federal judge granted the delay and ordered him to report to prison Nov. 28.
