A United States District judge has delayed the sentencing of Dothan pastor Kenneth Glasgow until July.

According to an order by Judge R. Austin Huffaker, Jr., Glasgow's sentencing will now take place on July 6 in Montgomery. An attorney for Glasgow in May requested a delay of a sentencing hearing originally scheduled for June 1 due to one of Glasgow's attorneys suffering from health issues.

Glasgow, Al Sharpton's half-brother, is facing up to 20 years in prison after pleading guilty to tax evasion, mail fraud and drug conspiracy charges in February, according to a press release.

Glasgow entered a plea deal in Montgomery federal court to avoid a trial that was set to start in March. 

The 57-year-old pastor was charged with failure to report a withdrawal of over $400,000 from one of his two Dothan non-profits, The Ordinary People Society, in 2018. Glasgow claimed the money was withdrawn as reimbursement for his work. However, during that period, he claimed an inability to work or drive to receive disability income from the government. He failed to report the funds as income on his tax return.

The Department of Justice was alerted to a disparity when Glasgow was issued 27 traffic citations between 2017 and 2020.

Per WTVY, Glasgow agreed to pay the IRS $376,720 in restitution for tax years 2016 through 2019 as part of the plea deal.
