COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- A federal judge has delayed sentencing a former Ohio wildlife official who helped a South Carolina game warden illegally obtain an Ohio deer license at a discount.
Prosecutors are pushing for prison time for 45-year-old Allan Wright, who was fired by the state in October.
Cincinnati federal Judge Michael Barrett on Monday rescheduled the sentencing for July 17 at the request of Wright's lawyer, who declined comment.
Wright pleaded guilty earlier this year to the illegal trafficking of three deer shot by a fellow hunter and South Carolina game warden using a fraudulent Ohio hunting license.
Wright, who now lives in Tennessee, was also convicted of seizing the antlers of two deer taken illegally and giving the antlers to a friend instead of securing them as crime evidence.
