Sentencing for one of three suspects in the armed robbery of a Little Caesars Pizza restaurant in Lumberton, has been postponed until Monday at 2 p.m.
Tyler D’Sean LeBlanc, 24, had pled guilty in September to two counts of aggravated robbery and one count of evading arrest in the robbery of the pizza place on Nov. 21, 2013.
LeBlanc was scheduled to be sentenced in front of 356th District Judge Steve Thomas on Wednesday afternoon, but new evidence presented in the case forced both defense and prosecuting attorneys to postpone the sentencing.
Prior arrests of LeBlanc and prior evidence on the co-defendants were presented to attorneys before sentencing began.
LeBlanc’s attorney asked Judge Thomas to not consider evidence of one of the co-defendants involvement in a prior burglary in Beaumont similar to the case in Lumberton.
