Judge delays sentencing for Tenn. nuke protesters

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – A judge has delayed a sentencing hearing for a nun and two other protesters for breaking into a nuclear weapons plant in Tennessee.

The Knoxville News Sentinel (http://bit.ly/15XEx0Z) reports the U.S. District Judge Amul R. Thapar granted a motion last week from defense attorneys asking to postpone the date.

The sentencing, which had been scheduled this month, was reset for Jan. 28.

Defense attorneys said they needed more time to prepare for the proceeding.
