Tim Longmeyer pleaded guilty in April to using his influence as head of Kentucky's Personnel Cabinet to steer contracts to a public relations firm in 2014 and 2015. Longmeyer admitted to receiving more than $200,000 in kickbacks.

Longmeyer's sentencing is set for Thursday afternoon in federal court in Lexington.
