Sentence delayed for a New Orleans Cop

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The sentencing has been delayed for one of the former New Orleans police officers who pleaded guilty to a cover-up in the Danziger Bridge shooting during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

Michael Lohman, a former lieutenant with the NOPD, was originally set to be sentenced on May 26. WWL-TV reports that U.S. Attorney Jim Letten requested more time to evaluate his cooperation before a sentence is imposed.

While no official date has been set, Letten requested another 120 days. He said if the matter under investigation hasn't been resolved, he will request another continuance.

Lohman pleaded guilty in February to conspiring to obstruct justice. He was the first to plead guilty in a series of federal investigations into police shootings.
