Jackson, Miss. A federal judge has rescheduled the sentencing hearing for a Neshoba County man convicted of involuntary manslaughter in the death of a 13-year-old bicyclist.
Christopher Thompson Jr., of Philadelphia, was convicted in the death that happened in the Bogue Chitto community on the Choctaw Reservation in 2011.
Prosecutors say Thompson was driving drunk that day, with a blood alcohol level 0.21 percent, more than twice the legal limit.
Thompson faces a maximum penalty of eight years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
His sentencing had been set for Nov. 19, but is now scheduled for Nov. 25 in U.S. District Court in Jackson.
