The imposition of sentencing was continued in a Friday morning hearing for a bail bondsman found guilty of accepting sexual favors in lieu of half of a bail bond.
Kenneth Waters appeared with his attorney, Daniel Karalash, for the short hearing. Karalash told Judge Daniel B. Proud that he felt it was inappropriate for the case to have been sent to the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals. He noted there was a motion pending to send the case back to the state Supreme Court.
Prosecutor Trish Kelliher requested that the imposition of the sentence, 120 days in county jail, not be put off and be imposed then.
Respectfully denying the request, Proud decided to continue the hearing in hopes that the pending motion was dealt with in the higher courts and a decision could be made of where the case would be heard. A new hearing was set for Sept. 27 at 8:30 a.m. in Department 2 to set a date for the imposition of the sentence.
