AKRON, Ohio - Sentencing has been delayed for a Stow teenager convicted in a plot to lure men desperate for work with phony craigslist job offers.
The judge said sentencing will be held Friday at 1:30 p.m. but did not explain the reason for the delay. All parties in the case are under a gag order.
The mother of the 17-year-old says the delay is "probably" related to a possible deal for leniency in return for her son's testimony against the alleged triggerman, Richard Beasley.
Three men were killed and a fourth victim was shot but survived.
The jury rejected the defense claim that Rafferty feared for his life if he didn't cooperate with Beasley.
The 53-year-old Beasley has pleaded not guilty and will be tried in January.
