Sentencing Delayed for Daniel Borden
A judge is delaying the sentencing of an Ohio man guilty of taking part in the beating of DeAndre Harris. Daniel Borden was found guilty of malicious wounding back on May 21.
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - A judge is delaying the sentencing of an Ohio man guilty of taking part in the violent beating of DeAndre Harris last summer.
Daniel Patrick Borden was found guilty of malicious wounding back on May 21. He was expected to receive his sentencing in Charlottesville Circuit Court Monday, October 1, but Borden's attorney is asking the court for more time.
The defense stated the delay is due to Borden wanting more character witnesses for his sentencing hearing.
The prosecution said in court Monday that Borden is not cooperating with those involved in preparing a pre-sentencing report. Borden wants his lawyer to be present during the routine procedure, which is uncommon, but both sides are working to accommodate him.
Borden is one of several men found guilty of beating Harris inside the Market Street Parking Garage on August 12, 2017.
Sentencing is now scheduled for January 7, 2019.
