Sentencing delayed for man accused of binding kids

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- Sentencing has been delayed for an Illinois man who was arrested after two of his children were found bound and blindfolded in a Wal-Mart parking lot in eastern Kansas.

Adolfo Gomez and his wife, Deborah Gomez, of Northlake, Ill., were arrested June 13 in Lawrence after police found two of their children, ages 5 and 7, bound by their hands and feet in the store parking lot.

Deborah Gomez was sentenced earlier to one year of probation after pleading no contest to child endangerment. Adolfo Gomez awaits sentencing after pleading no contest to felony child abuse and child endangerment.

6NewsLawrence reports (http://bit.ly/YEGAAM ) Adolfo Gomez was scheduled to be sentenced this week, but the sentencing was canceled because Gomez requested a new lawyer. A status conference is scheduled for April 11.
