Teddy Mitchell's sentencing has been postponed to Jan. 9.
Mitchell, 59, pleaded guilty in July in Oklahoma City federal court to involvement in an illegal offshore Internet sports gambling business. He also pleaded guilty to a money-laundering conspiracy.
The sentencing was scheduled for Tuesday.
U.S. District Judge David Russell agreed to the delay because prosecutors plan to put evidence on at the sentencing that Mitchell committed tax evasion.
Defense attorneys asked for the delay. They complained they have “not been provided enough time to prepare to defend against this brand new allegation.”
