Sentencing has been delayed a second time for a state lawmaker who was suspended after his conviction for perjury and voter fraud.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office said Monday that Sen. Rod Wright is now set for sentencing Sept. 3 instead of later this month.

He faces up to eight years and four months in prison after being convicted in January of eight felonies. They include perjury, false declaration of candidacy and fraudulent voting.

Wright claimed to live in an apartment in Inglewood. Prosecutors said he actually lived in a single-family home in Baldwin Hills, which is in a different Senate district.

Wright took a voluntary leave of absence, then was suspended from the Senate in March along with two other Democratic senators who are facing federal charges.
