Former University of Louisville education dean Robert Felner’s sentencing has been rescheduled for May 17.
Felner, who pleaded guilty in January to nine federal charges, including tax evasion, was due to be sentenced Friday. Scott C. Cox, who is Felner’s attorney, said the sentencing date was moved because of a scheduling conflict.
As part of his plea, Felner agreed to serve 63 months in prison in connection with defrauding U of L and another university of $2.3 million. He also agreed to pay restitution of $510,000 to UofL, $1.64 million to the University of Rhode Island and $88,750 to the Rock Island County Council on Addiction in Illinois. Additionally, he agreed to forfeit property to the federal government that he owns in Florida and Illinois, as well as bank accounts of undisclosed values.
Felner was indicted in October 2008 in Louisville on charges of mail fraud, conspiracy to commit money laundering, income tax evasion and conspiracy to impede and impair the Internal Revenue Service.
The charges against Felner carried a maximum penalty of 75 years in prison...
Thomas Schroeder of Port Byron, Ill., a co-defendant of Felner, is scheduled to go to trial Aug. 9...
