Sentencing of ex-Atlantic City mayor moved to Feb. 27
(AP) - The sentencing of former Atlantic City Mayor Frank Gilliam Jr. has been pushed back until the end of February.
The former mayor was due to appear next week in federal court following a guilty plea in October to wire fraud. The new sentencing date has been set for Feb. 27.
In pleading guilty last fall, Gilliam admitted stealing more than $87,000 from a youth basketball program he had founded. Authorities say he used the money on personal expenses including lavish clothing and meals.
He also must repay the stolen money.
