Former Juvenile Court Judge To Be Sentenced In February
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Former Orleans Parish Juvenile Court Judge Yolanda King, convicted in November of falsifying campaign documents and submitting the bogus forms to election officials, will be sentenced Feb. 18.
NOLA.com/The Times-Picayune reports (http://bit.ly/1OSSkMb ) judicial administrator Robert Kazik confirmed the new date for King, whose original Dec. 3 sentencing was postponed because of a death in her family.
King, who remains free on $5,000 bond, faces up to five years in prison when sentenced by ad hoc Judge Michael Kirby.
A six-person Orleans Parish jury found King guilty Nov. 10, agreeing with prosecutor's claim that King deliberately and falsely claimed a New Orleans domicile when she actually lived in St. Tammany Parish.
