Sentencing delay for Darren Sharper in Vegas sex case

LAS VEGAS (AP) - Sentencing is being postponed for former NFL star Darren Sharper in Las Vegas on a felony attempted sex assault charge as part of a four-state plea agreement.

Sharper had been scheduled to appear Thursday by video from Louisiana, where he pleaded guilty last week to three rape charges.

Prosecutor James Sweetin says a new Nevada sentencing date will probably be in late August.

A plea deal calls for the 39-year-old Sharper to serve 38 months to eight years after pleading guilty in March in Las Vegas to attempted sexual assault.

He'd serve the Nevada time concurrently with sentences in California and Arizona, and state and federal sentences in New Orleans that are expected to amount to about nine years.

Sharper retired in 2011 after a 14-year NFL career.
