Sentencing is delayed for a former assistant high school football coach in Sidney on drug charges.
SIDNEY, Neb. (AP) - Robert Lewis was charged last November after the Nebraska State Patrol found marijuana and hashish in his car during a traffic stop in Sidney. Troopers had been tipped that he was transporting drugs.
Lewis pleaded guilty in May to two drug possession charges.
Lewis' sentencing, which had been set for Thursday, was reset for Aug. 8. Cheyenne County Attorney Paul Schaub says the delay is to complete a pre-sentence investigation.
Lewis had been on the Sidney High School coaching staff for ten years. He faces up to 10 years in prison.
