The long-awaited sentencing of Edwin Gary Smith has been postponed, again, until 9 a.m. Friday, Jan. 13.
This will likely be the last postponement allowed for the sentencing, according to a report by District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe. The sentencing was originally set for Oct. 4.

In a plea bargain, Mr. Smith, 64, agreed to a maximum prison term of eight years and agreed that the court could order payment of restitution to all victims and on all counts, including counts that were dismissed, prosecutors said.
The initial charges against Mr. Smith included 40 counts of identity theft, 20 counts of credit card fraud, and 19 counts of elder abuse in connection with losses of over $350,000, prosecutors said.
Mr. Smith is out of custody on $350,000 bail.
