CHARLESTON, WV (AP) -

The sentencing of a former Mingo County circuit judge has been pushed back to next spring.

Michael Thornsbury was scheduled to be sentenced Jan. 13. Court documents show that U.S. District Judge Thomas E. Johnston on Monday granted a prosecution request to delay the proceeding.

Thornsbury's sentencing is now set for April 21, 2014.

Federal prosecutors sought the delay to given them more time to investigate information Thornsbury provided in a corruption probe.

Thornsbury pleaded guilty in October to a federal conspiracy charge and resigned from the bench.

He faces up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
