The sentencing for the former director of the Gulf Coast Community Action Agency in Gulfport and two contractors on bribery charges has been reset for June 5.
Linda Harvey-Irvin, the agency’s former director, and contractors Markuntala Croom of Columbia and Donald Walton of Vicksburg had been scheduled for sentencing this month, but the judge postponed it on the request of attorneys for the three. Each is facing a maximum prison sentence of 10 years, up to $250,000 in fines and forfeiture of all their proceeds.
