Jeffreys sentencing delayed again

A judge has ordered the sentencing for married couple Greg and Kimberly Jeffreys, both of whom pleaded guilty to defrauding development investors in Spokane and elsewhere, pushed to the summer.

For Greg Jeffreys, the accused mastermind of schemes ranging from leasing property at inflated rices in the restored Ridpath Hotel downtown and bilking the federal government of funds in the construction of a military installation off Highway 2, it is the second continuance granted ahead of sentencing. Prosecutors want Jeffreys to serve eight years in prison and pay back millions in restitution from fraudulent schemes, but Jeffreys plans to fight that amount by calling a cavalcade of witnesses at his sentencing hearing.

That hearing will now tentatively take place in June, according to a court order signed last week.

Kimberly Jeffreys, who pleaded guilty in February to fraud charges stemming from the military installation construction, was granted her first sentencing continuance. A hearing scheduled for next month has been pushed to July, according to court records. For her involvement, prosecutors want Kimberly Jeffreys to spend six months in prison and pay restitution of up to $150,000.

A third conspirator, Shannon Stiltner, was sentenced in February to seven months of prison time and ordered to pay restitution to two investors totaling about $58,000.
