Sentencing Reset for Las Vegas Carnage Defendant

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- A judge agreed to postpone sentencing until Feb. 26 for a self-described pimp who was convicted of sexual assault in one case and is due to stand trial next September in a Las Vegas Strip shooting and crash that left three people dead.

Ammar Harris' defense attorney, Robert Langford, said Wednesday that he and attorney Thomas Ericsson need more time to review transcripts they recently received following Harris' trial in September.

Harris is 27. He could face life in prison for his conviction in the June 2010 sex attack on an 18-year-old woman at a Las Vegas condominium.

Separately, Harris has pleaded not guilty and faces a death penalty trial in the Strip shooting and crash that killed an aspiring rapper, a cab driver and taxi passenger last Feb. 21.
