Sentencing for former Hamilton Mayor John Bencivengo moved back

The former mayor of Hamilton, John Bencivengo, will get another few weeks before he faces a judge for sentencing.

According to federal court documents, his sentencing has been moved back from Feb. 27 to March 13 at 10:30 a.m.

A jury convicted him in November of five federal corruption charges, which carry up to 20 years in prison. He resigned later that day.

Bencivengo was convicted of taking $12,400 in bribes from the government’s cooperating witness, Marliese Ljuba, in exchange for his influence with the Hamilton Board of Education, so that she could keep her lucrative health insurance brokerage for her employer, Allen Associates.

More information to come later.
