Daycare provider sentenced delayed yet again

The sentencing for Lupe Almaguer, a former Mammoth Lakes daycare provider who was arrested last October on child sexual abuse charges, was continued yet again at the request of Almaguer's attorney Tuesday.

Almaguer was on the court calendar to be sentenced March 29, but was granted a continuance to April 26, according to Todd Graham, Mono County Deputy District Attorney.

Graham said earlier that the District Attorney's office would be ready to move forward on March 29. "I will state on the record that I am ready to proceed with the hearing," he said in a March 25 email.

The proceeding will now be heard on April 26th, 2011, at 1:30 p.m. in Bridgeport.

Almaguer was a long time Mammoth daycare provider who is now in jail for several counts of child sexual abuse, pending many months of investigation.
