OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Sentencing has been postponed for an Oklahoma man who pleaded guilty to federal gambling and money laundering charges.

Teddy Mitchell pleaded guilty in July to being involved in an illegal offshore Internet sports gambling business. Prosecutors called him one of the most successful "sub-agents" in a Costa Rica-based business and say he made about $900,000 a year.

U.S. District Judge David Russell was to sentence Mitchell on Tuesday. But Russell signed an order Monday rescheduling the sentencing until Jan. 9. The 59-year-old Mitchell has asked the judge for a sentence of no more than six months.

Mitchell’s attorneys say he has raised his 4-year-old daughter London by himself since his wife – Julie Mitchell – was beaten to death in 2010 in a case that remains unsolved.
