VICKSBURG, Mississippi (AP) — Former Vicksburg Mayor Paul Winfield is selling his home on Facebook.

The Vicksburg Post reports that the ad first Friday afternoon on his Facebook page and was forwarded to people who were on his “friends” list. It remained on his Facebook page Tuesday.

The home has four bedrooms and 2 1/2 bathrooms. It was built in 1925. The asking price is $425,000.

Winfield and his wife, Malissa, bought the house, known as the Fannie Peeples home, in 2010 and renovated it.

Winfield pleaded guilty last week in U.S. District Court in Natchez to one count of bribery. U.S. District Judge David Bramlette set sentencing for Nov. 19. Until then, Winfield remains free on a $10,000 unsecured bond.

Winfield faces up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
