Sentencing for a Leavenworth man convicted of battering a police officer and other charges has been continued until next month.

Sentencing for a Leavenworth man convicted of battering a police officer and other charges has been continued until next month.

Orville W. Sieg, 47, was scheduled to be sentenced Friday in Leavenworth County District Court for charges of a felony charge of interference with a law enforcement officer and misdemeanor counts of battery on a law enforcement officer, driving with a suspended license, criminal damage to property and reckless driving.

But the sentencing was continued until Aug. 22 because a presentencing report has not been completed.

Sieg was convicted of the charges last month at the conclusion of a trial.

The charges stemmed from a July 29, 2017, incident in Leavenworth. Sieg reportedly was in a vehicle at a convenience store at 300 N. Fourth St. when a police officer attempted to take him into custody for an arrest warrant for a drug charge, according to County Attorney Todd Thompson.

Sieg reportedly resisted arrest and placed the car in drive while the officer was partially inside the vehicle. The officer was dragged as the car exited onto Miami Street. Sieg reportedly struck the officer, attempting to dislodge him from the vehicle.

The officer was thrown from the vehicle onto Miami Street, suffering injuries to his knees, right forearm and one of his hands.

Sieg was already scheduled to be sentenced in another case on Aug. 22.

Sieg's attorney, James Colgan, suggested Friday that his client could be sentenced for both cases on the same day.

"I think we can do them both at the same time," Colgan said.

Sieg is awaiting sentencing in the other case for a charge of aggravated assault. That charge stems from an April 4, 2017, incident in Leavenworth in which Sieg reportedly pointed a gun at a bondsman.

Sieg also was convicted of this charge last month.

A hearing for post-trial motions is scheduled for July 25.

In March, Sieg was convicted of possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia. He already has been sentenced in this case to more than three years in prison.
