ST. JOHNS, AZ - The sentencing hearing for a St. Johns boy who pleaded guilty to a trio of probation violations has been postponed.
The boy's attorney, Ron Wood, asked the Apache County Superior Court to move the hearing from Friday to Sept. 28. He says a clinical psychologist who has treated his client for the past two months wants to note progress as part of a presentence report.
The boy was 8 when he was charged in double homicide in St. Johns in 2008. He pleaded guilty to a single count of negligent homicide and was sentenced to residential treatment. Prosecutors dropped a murder charge against the boy in his father's death.
He pleaded guilty in June to probation violations of twice leaving the treatment center without permission and destroying a wall clock.
