DOCUMENT | JUDGE GRANTS FRANKLIN FENNELL ONE MORE WEEK

According to court documents, this was so he can "attend to certain personal matters."

Last week we told you that a judge denied his request for a two-week extension.

On April 19th, a federal judge sentenced Fennell to two years in federal prison. That's after a jury in December convicted him on all counts filed against him related to the stealing of federal funds while Fennell was employed with the Vigo County School Corporation.
