Sentencing Hearing for Richard Bohling Postponed
Former Albany County Attorney Richard Bohling will not be sentenced Wednesday, Feb. 3 as initially scheduled.
Albany County District Court clerk Janice Sexton says in an email that hazardous weather and road conditions surrounding Laramie forced the sentencing hearing to be pushed back.
Sexton says the sentencing has been rescheduled for Feb. 22.
A jury convicted Bohling in November of four felony counts of obtaining property by false pretenses as well as misdemeanor official misconduct.
The Albany County Commissioners submitted a victim impact statement after the trial, saying that Bohling's crimes were serious enough to warrant 3-5 years in prison.
On Feb. 22, Judge John R. Perry of Gillette could impose a maximum sentence of 40 years in prison and over $40,000 in fines.
