HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Hub City Pastor Kenneth Fairley has been granted a continuance on the filing deadline pertaining to his sentencing date.

The motion was filed Thursday, by Texas based attorney, Arnold Spencer, who represented Fairley during his federal trial where he was convicted on Sept. 12.

Fairley, 62, was found guilty of conspiracy to commit theft of government money, and two counts of receiving, retaining, concealing or converting money that belonged to the government.

“Defendant Kenneth Fairley Sr., and respectfully moves this Court for a continuance of the reporting date for responses and objections to the Presentence report,” said Spencer in the motion.

Fairley is set to be sentenced at 2 p.m. on Dec. 19, at the William M. Colmer Federal Building  and United States Courthouse in Hattiesburg.

Responses to that were due Friday, Oct. 28, and Fairley requested a two-week extension of the deadline, which has been moved to Nov. 11, 2016.

“Counsel for Mr. Fairley has conferred with the government regarding this extension, and the government does not object,” Spencer said. 

That motion was accepted and granted by District Judge Keith Starrett Friday afternoon.

“Motion for extension of time to file responses and objections to the Presentence Report, Defendant Fairley’s responses and objection shall be due on or before Nov. 11, 2016,” said Starrett in his order.
