FLORENCE, Ariz. (AP) - Sentencing for a 75-year-old San Tan Valley man accused of child molestation has been delayed again.

Darrell Stock pleaded guilty to two of six child molestation charges against him in a plea arrangement in July.

He was originally scheduled to be sentenced Oct. 28, but Stock's attorney Brad Smith used the need of a risk assessment to delay the sentencing process.

The Casa Grande Dispatch reports Stock was supposed to be sentenced to a likely presumptive 10 years in prison on Monday, but that didn't happen.

Smith appeared in court in a wheelchair to ask the court for another risk assessment and a 60-day continuance. A Pinal County Superior Court judge allowed the sentencing to be continued until June 1.
