KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) -- A new sentencing date has been set for a former Internal Revenue Service agent who admitted receiving payments for meetings with taxpayers that never occurred.

Court records show a hearing for Becky L. Book of Pittsburg is now scheduled for May 21.

She pleaded guilty in February to receiving more than $26,000 in salary and mileage payments she didn't earn.

Prosecutors say Book claimed she worked 744 hours between March 2010 and April 2011, but she actually used those hours as unauthorized personal time.

U.S. District Judge Kathryn Vratil will decide whether to accept the government's recommendation of a sentence of probation.

Book has agreed to pay $13,000 in partial payment of restitution at her sentencing.
