HOUSTON - A Federal judge in Houston has delayed the sentencing of Daniel Duplaisir, the man convicted of blackmailing a Texas A&M professor who jumped to his death.
Duplaisir pleaded guilty to one count of extortion in June, and admitted to posing as a 16-year-old girl during explicit online chats with Professor James Aune. Duplaisir also threatened to expose the Communications Professor if he didn't pay him $5,000.
Sentencing for Duplaisir was delayed until Monday, because of court scheduling issues.
The maximum penalty in this case is two years in prison.
