Former Brunswick County Sheriff Ronald Hewett will have to wait one more month before being sentenced on his federal obstruction of justice charge.
U.S. District Judge W. Earl Britt will sentence Hewett at 9 a.m. Oct. 6 at the federal courthouse in Raleigh.
Hewett’s sentencing was originally scheduled for Sept. 8.
As part of an eight-page plea agreement signed in U.S. District Court on June 2, Hewett pleaded guilty to one count of obstruction of justice before Britt.
He faces up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
