JUNEAU - Convicted sex offender Richard Bailey will stay a free man for at least the next two months because of the conflicting schedules of the judge and attorneys involved in his case.
Bailey, 60, pleaded guilty in March to two counts of online enticement of a minor.
His sentencing was delayed by three months in April because his lawyer needed surgery.
On Thursday, Bailey's sentencing was put off until Sept. 12 because of scheduling conflicts between his lawyer and Juneau District Attorney Doug Gardner, both of whom are planning vacations for August. Superior Court Judge Philip Pallenberg said his calendar was also full with other cases.
Pallenberg said he wasn't happy about the delay but did not know what could be done about it.
