CHARLOTTE, MECKLENBURG COUNTY - Former Charlotte Mayor Patrick Cannon could be sentenced as early as next week on a plea to a public corruption charge.
Multiple media outlets reported that court documents show that federal probation officials have completed their pre-sentencing report for Cannon.
The document says U.S. District Judge Frank Whitney will sentence Cannon on Sept. 3 or later.
Cannon has pleaded guilty to taking more than $50,000 in bribes from FBI undercover agents. An affidavit in the case says Cannon sought more than $1 million in kickbacks during a meeting in his office.
Cannon was arrested last March and resigned that day. He pleaded guilty June 3.
Cannon faces up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine when he is sentenced.
