A sentencing date for recently convicted local attorney Alonzo Ramos has been rescheduled for August 1, according to court records.
The 40-year-old attorney faces up to five years in federal prison along with a $250,000 fine.
He was originally scheduled to receive his sentence Tuesday.
In February, Ramos pled out in Dallas courtroom after admitting he helped facilitate the distribution of nearly $50,000 in drug trafficking proceeds.
What's up with delaying sentencings till August? Alonzo Ramos and Abe Martinez have had their cases delayed until next month. One thing that could quell my nervous anticipation is to have a Nancy Grace type rail against these delays.
