JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Sentencing for former Mississippi Department of Corrections Commissioner Christopher Epps has been delayed again.

A federal judge delayed the sentencing to May 24. Epps pleaded guilty in February 2015 to charges of money laundering and filing false tax returns.

Prosecutors say Epps took over a million dollars in bribes.

He faces up to 23 years in prison and is forfeiting $1.7 million in assets.
