MONROE, La. (AP) - The former Louisiana state trooper accused of payroll fraud, malfeasance and conspiracy to distribute cocaine will return to court in January.

The News-Star reports (https://tnsne.ws/1WIWcCY) Ronald Thomas was scheduled to be sentenced Monday, but after a private conference with attorneys and Judge Larry Jefferson, it was decided to have him return Jan. 12.

In August, Thomas pleaded guilty to malfeasance, obstruction of justice and money laundering.

Thomas faces 20 years in prison and $40,000 in fines.

At the time of his arrest, Superintendent of State Police Mike Edmondson said information during the course of another investigation suggested Thomas might have been involved in illegal activity.
