OXFORD – Former Tupelo attorney William Catledge will be sentenced Nov. 5 on guilty pleas to federal charges of tax evasion and fraud.
The court last week set his sentence hearing for Thursday before Senior Judge Neal B. Biggers Jr. in Oxford. On Monday, he asked the U.S. District Court to reset the sentencing because one of his lawyers will be on a foreign vacation, and the court agreed on the Nov. 5 date.
His lawyers also said they need more one more meeting with Catledge since receipt of a revised pre-sentence report from the U.S. Probation Service.
If Catledge had been found guilty at trial, he faced up to 29 years in prison and $200,000 in fines.
