GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - Federal court records say a change of plea hearing has been rescheduled for a man charged in a Hurricane Katrina fraud case.
A change of plea hearing had been scheduled for trial Feb. 4 for Anthony L. Bryan. It has now been changed to Feb. 6.
He is charged with fraudulently obtaining more than $97,000 for a house he claimed was his primary residence when Katrina hit in 2005.
He had pleaded not guilty in U.S. District Court in Gulfport on Oct. 25.
The Oct. 16 indictment says Bryan created a bill of sale to make it appear he owned and lived in the Bay St. Louis house.
Prosecutors allege that the house was not his primary residence.
