GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - A Gulf Coast contractor’s sentencing in a bribery conspiracy case involving the Harrison County Utility Authority has been rescheduled.

Sean H. Anthony remains free on bond pending his Oct. 5 sentencing. The sentencing had been set for Aug. 3. The conspiracy charge carries a possible five-year sentence.

Anthony pleaded guilty in March to conspiracy to commit bribery and wire fraud. Court records show he admitted to bribing former Harrison County Utility Authority Executive Director Kamran Pahlavan and former Harrison County Supervisor Kim Savant in exchange for contracts for his company.

Savant pleaded guilty to taking as much as $36,000 in cash bribes from Anthony while serving on the authority board. He will be sentenced Oct. 1.

Anthony’s company, S.H. Anthony Inc., worked on a variety of construction jobs following 2005’s Hurricane Katrina.
