Sentencing for former Inman Police Chief Michael Akins Jr. has been delayed for the third time. Akins was scheduled to be sentenced Friday at 1 p.m. However, prosecutors requested a delay. His sentencing is now set for Feb. 22 at 9 a.m.
Akins was found guilty last month of eight counts of aggravated indecent liberties, three counts of indecent solicitation of a child and one count each of indecent liberties, battery, aggravated indecent solicitation of a child and attempted aggravated indecent liberties.
He was acquitted on two counts of aggravated indecent liberties, one count of battery and one count of lewd and lascivious behavior.
Two of the counts of aggravated indecent liberties that he was convicted on carry a life sentence because of Jessica’s Law.
Akins remains free on $250,000 bond until sentencing.
His sentencing was originally set for Feb. 1.
