GULFPORT — A plea hearing has been rescheduled for a man indicted in an alleged conspiracy to falsify the temperatures of chicken exported from Mississippi to Russia.
The Sun Herald reports U.S. District Judge Louis Guirola Jr. set a new plea date of May 20 for Terry White.
White is one of three men indicted in 2012 on charges of arranging the export of chicken that did not meet temperature requirements under a trade agreement with Russia. The indictment says chicken was removed from freezers in 2009 before reaching approved temperatures to increase production.
White had been scheduled to plead guilty Monday. His attorney asked a judge to delay the plea hearing pending completion of a pre-sentence investigation report. Prosecutors did not oppose the delay, according to court records.
