Sentencing delayed in Kauai dam break case

By Associated Press

LIHUE, Hawaii (AP) A retired car dealer's medical ailment is delaying his sentencing for a Kauai dam breach that swept seven people to their deaths in 2006.

James Pflueger tells the Garden Island newspaper a leg condition is preventing him from traveling from Honolulu to Kauai for the sentencing, which was scheduled for next week.

Attorney William McCorriston says sentencing for his client has been rescheduled for April.

The 87-year-old Pflueger pleaded no contest last year to first-degree reckless endangerment for his role in the Ka Loko dam break on his property. In exchange for the plea, prosecutors agreed to drop manslaughter charges.

Bruce Fehring's daughter, son-in-law and 2-year-old grandson were among those who died. Fehring expressed disappointment with the delay.
