HAMMOND | A federal judge has agreed for a second time to delay the sentencing in a tax evasion case involving a former Gary councilwoman.

Marilyn Krusas will be sentenced at 1:30 p.m. Dec. 12, according to court records. She was scheduled to be sentenced Oct. 29.

The sentencing was pushed back because Krusas is expected to undergo a medical examination Nov. 13 that will give her and the court better insight into her health, according to an order filed Thursday in federal court. The sentencing was previously pushed back in July because of medical treatments she was undergoing this fall.

Krusas pleaded guilty in April to charges of tax evasion. According to court records, Krusas hadn't filed tax returns since 1991 and didn't pay taxes on a $232,680 inheritance.

She resigned from the Gary City Council in April.

Prosecutors have asked a judge to sentenced Krusas to 12 to 18 months in prison.
