ABERDEEN, Miss. (AP) — The former superintendent of a school district in the Mississippi Delta convicted in federal bribery case says he can't make a $75,000 mid-January restitution payment ordered by a judge.

Former Greenville Public School District superintendent Harvey Franklin was sentenced to 76 months this month for taking more than $270,000 in bribes to influence the school board to use a reading program for children.

He also was ordered to pay $1.2 million in restitution to the U.S. Department of Education — with the first $75,000 due in mid-January.

The Delta Democrat Times reports ( that Franklin's attorney, Lisa Ross, filed a motion on Nov. 21 asking U.S. District Judge Sharion Aycock for another review of Franklin's assets. Franklin hasn't been employed since he resigned as superintendent in May 2012.
