The sentencing hearing for a former Hawkeye football player found guilty of simple assault has been delayed, according to court documents.

Cedric Everson, 21, was scheduled to be sentenced at 9 a.m. today.

Everson and former teammate Abe Satterfield, 22, were originally charged with second-degree sexual abuse after allegedly sexually assaulting a former Hawkeye athlete in a Hillcrest dorm room more than three years ago.

Satterfield entered a plea bargain in exchange for his testimony against Everson; he was sentenced to a $625 fine, $326 in victim restitution, and two days in jail.

Leon Spies, Everson's attorney, said the sentencing hearing was postponed because of "financial issues" and a "personal family matter" regarding Everson.

Spies also filed a motion to have Everson's presence excused at the sentencing, which the judge denied.
