POINT PLEASANT — Former Sheriff David L. Anthony’s sentencing has been unexpectedly continued until May 21.
The sentencing hearing, which began this morning, was continued because Anthony has failed to provide the court with a written apology to residents and office holders which he agreed to in his plea bargain.
Anthony’s Attorney David Moye said he took responsibility for that not being available in writing this morning, claiming he had advised Anthony to go on the record today with the apology during the court proceedings. The Honorable Judge David Nibert reminded Moye and Anthony they had both signed off on the plea agreement which specifically states the written apology. Moye apologized again and said “I take that responsibility” for not having the written apology.
Nibert continued the sentencing to 9:30 a.m., May 21.
