A judge delayed the sentencing hearing for William Jefferson.

The defense needed more time to review a pre sentence report, so the judge granted the delay.

A jury convicted the former congressman of using his influence to broker deals in Africa.

A sentencing is now set for November 13th. Jefferson could get more than 20 years in prison.
