ABERDEEN, Miss. (AP) - The sentencing hearing for a former Southaven contractor who admitted to submitting fake invoices to a bank for work at a subdivision his company never built has been delayed until an unspecified date.

The Commercial Appeal reports (https://bit.ly/1b085LA ) James Harris was scheduled for sentencing Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Aberdeen, Miss., but his lawyers Monday asked for and received a continuance because they said in a motion that there were discrepancies over a payment amount.

Harris admitted during his plea hearing that he submitted four fake invoices to Citizens National Bank, falsely claiming that his company needed to draw money from a bank loan to construct a box culvert at or near Cherry Hill subdivision, when in reality Southaven had already paid his company to install the culvert.
