Sentencing for former lawmaker LeDoux pushed back again

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Sentencing has been pushed back for a former Kansas state legislator who pleaded guilty in May to defrauding a Colby bank out of more than $400,000.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports 40-year-old Trent LeDoux of Holton was scheduled to be sentenced on Monday, but his attorney filed for a continuance because LeDoux is having surgery on Thursday.

The former Republican state representative now will be sentenced on Nov. 17 in federal court. It’s his second continuance after his attorney earlier filed for one pushing back his previously scheduled Aug. 11 sentencing date.

LeDoux applied for three loans and told a bank he was going to use all of the money to buy cattle, but instead used some of it to pay off debts and make contributions to his campaign account.
