Clay County , West Virginia
A convicted Clay County sex offender's sentencing has been delayed again because he failed to make an appointment with a psychologist.
Brian Adkins' lawyer took the blame for failing to notify him of the date of the appointment. Adkins has already pleaded guilty to sexual assault and faces up to 20 years in prison.
The grandmother of the victim said the delays are just one aspect of the case that has been so frustrating.
She complained the prosecutor's office told her Adkins pleaded guilty to two counts when in fact he only admitted to the single offense of sexual abuse by a parent, guardian or custodian.
Adkins' sentencing has been rescheduled for December.
