MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- A federal judge has delayed sentencing for the second of two men who pleaded guilty to burning a cross in southeast Alabama.
Thomas Windell Smith of Dothan was supposed to be in court Tuesday.
But records show a judge has delayed his sentencing until May 15.
Smith and former Ku Klux Klan leader Steven Joshua Dinkle pleaded guilty last year to burning a cross in a black neighborhood in Ozark in 2009.
A judge recently delayed Dinkle's sentencing to allow time for a mental evaluation, and Smith's also is delayed.
Smith pleaded guilty to a charge of conspiring to violate housing rights by setting a cross afire in a black neighborhood.
