WEST MEMPHIS (Evening Times) - Sentencing for four men who have pleaded guilty to a conspiracy to commit election fraud has been postponed by U.S. District Judge Kristine Baker.

Sentencing had been set for Friday for former State Rep. Hudson Hallum, his father, Marion car dealer Kent Hallum, former West Memphis City Councilman Phillip Carter and former West Memphis police officer Sam Malone. Carter and Malone worked on Hallum's campaign.

All four men acknowledged in court that they participated in a conspiracy to bribe voters to influence absentee votes in the Arkansas District 54 primary, runoff and general elections in 2011.
