Phillip Henry will have to wait another week to find out whether he’s headed to jail.

Henry was convicted of using his fence company to scam Killeen-area residents out of thousands of dollars. His sentencing was set for Monday at 9 a.m. in 426th District court, but was reset to June 26.

The Salado man, who residents say scammed them out of their money through his fencing company, was found guilty April 25, according to Bell County District Attorney Henry Garza.

Henry, 37, was found guilty of theft over $20,000 but under $100,000, a third-degree felony offense.

The victims agreed if Henry paid $10,000 toward partial payment of the restitution he owed, the district attorney’s office will recommend he be placed on 10 years of probation and be required to make complete payment of restitution within the first five years of his probation, Garza said.

“This payment was made and restitution will begin to be disbursed to the victims in this case,” Garza said in an April interview.
