LAS VEGAS (AP) — Sentencing is being postponed at least another month for a Saudi Arabian air force sergeant facing a mandatory minimum of 35 years in Nevada state prison for raping a 13-year-old California boy at a Las Vegas Strip hotel.

A prosecutor and defense attorney said Monday's sentencing for Mazen Alotaibi (MAH'-zen ah-loh-TAH'-bee) has been pushed back to April 30 in Clark County District Court.

It's the second delay since trial attorney Don Chairez withdrew and a new team of attorneys took over the case.

The 24-year-old Alotaibi remains in custody at the Clark County Detention Center in Las Vegas.

A jury found him guilty in October of kidnapping and forcing sex on the boy in the bathroom of a sixth-floor room at the Circus Circus hotel on New Year's Eve 2012.
