Nate Newton's sentencing on a federal drug trafficking charge has been delayed at his request. The 40 year-old former Dallas Cowboys offensive lineman had been scheduled for sentencing next week before U.S. District Judge Barbara Lynn in Dallas. The sentencing has now been reset for August 14th.
Newton pleaded guilty to a drug trafficking charge in April after accepting a plea agreement. Authorities arrested Newton in Ellis County after they found $10,000 in Newton's red pickup, as well as 175 pounds of marijuana in the trunk of an accompanying Monte Carlo. The marijuana was worth an estimated $700,000.
