Ex-W. Feliciana official wins sentencing delay
ST. FRANCISVILLE - Former West Feliciana Parish Police Juror John Cobb has won a sentencing delay on his conviction for three counts of felony theft.
Cobb appeared in state District Court Thursday with a new attorney.
State police accused the 54-year-old Cobb and six other people, including Cobb's wife, of misappropriating $80,000 that was supposed to be transferred from a defunct, tax-exempt organization, Feliciana Enrichment Center, to Cobb's church, Union Bethel Family Church in Weyanoke.
Cobb was represented by attorneys Angela Lockett and Keith Sanchez when a six-member jury convicted him on the theft counts in October.
His new attorneys asked to continue Thursday's sentencing to give them time to study a transcript of Cobb's trial.
