Waggoner (61), was scheduled to receive his sentence on Thursday. He pleaded guilty to bribing Christopher Epps, then-prisons chief, for MDOC’s contract to provide telephone services to inmates. However, earlier this week, prosecutors disclosed 15 more contracts that were affected by the scandal. Judge Henry T. Wingate granted extra time to Waggoner and other defendants to examine the financial consequences of the case. The next hearing in this case will be held in Jackson at the U.S. District Courthouse.
