Sentencing Delayed in Amber Alert Sex Case
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- Sentencing has been delayed for a man convicted of taking a girl from southeast Alabama to Tennessee and Ohio for sex.
Charles Partin of Clayton had been scheduled for sentencing Wednesday in Montgomery, but U.S. District Judge Myron Thompson delayed it until Jan. 28 at the request of the defense. Partin's attorney said more time is needed to complete a psychological study that is necessary for the sentencing.
Partin was convicted in July of taking a girl to Tennessee and Ohio for sex when she was 15. He was also convicted of transporting a stolen vehicle across state lines.
The case prompted a national Amber Alert because the girl was taken from a state Department of Human Resources worker at a Dothan hospital in September 2012.
