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

Cedric Everson, 21, had been scheduled to be sentenced April 22. The hearing will now be held June 24 at 10:30 a.m.

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.

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

Sixth District Judge Paul Miller will also require Everson's presence at the sentencing, denying a motion from Spies to excuse him.
