HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) - Sentencing has been rescheduled for a south Mississippi couple convicted on federal charges of filing false tax returns.

WDAM-TV (https://bit.ly/2jNMQ7P ) reported Monday that Charles and Linda Bolton had been scheduled for sentencing Feb. 3, but it has been delayed until March 17. The couple was convicted Sept. 15.

The sentencing was set for Dec. 19 but was pushed back due to delays in the sentencing of Artie Fletcher and Kenneth Fairley.

Charles Bolton is a former Forrest County sheriff’s chief deputy. He was found guilty of four counts of tax evasion for 2010 to 2013 and five counts of filing a false tax report for 2009 to 2013.

Linda Bolton was found guilty on five counts of filing a false tax report for 2009 to 2013.

Both remain free on $25,000 unsecured bonds.
