TULSA - A sentencing hearing for the former superintendent of Skiatook Public Schools was delayed Monday until December.
Dr. Gary Johnson pleaded guilty in July to four counts of soliciting and accepting a bribe as a public employee.
In 2008, Johnson accepted $10,000 from Rick Enos, a vendor, to approve purchases of custodial supplies and security equipment for prices determined by Enos, all of which exceeded market value.
In June 2010, Johnson was indicted on bribery and embezzlement charges following a grand jury investigation. The indictments were later dropped by Tulsa County District Attorney Tim Harris.
Johnson's sentencing was originally scheduled for Monday but was postponed until Dec. 12. He could receive a maximum of 40 years in prison and a $20,000 fine.
Enos is charged with four counts of bribery.
