Sentencing has been continued in the case of a Leavenworth man who pleaded guilty to taking indecent liberties with his foster daughter.

Floyd W. Hardin Jr., 38, was scheduled to be sentenced Tuesday in Leavenworth County District Court.

But District Judge Michael Gibbens said attorneys in the case had requested a continuance.

Sentencing has been rescheduled for Nov. 21.

In August, Hardin pleaded guilty to aggravated indecent liberties with a child who was between the age of 14-16.

The crime reportedly occurred in December 2016. The victim, who was 15 at the time, had been placed in Hardin’s Leavenworth home as a foster child.

The victim reported to her foster mother that Hardin had touched her inappropriately, according to County Attorney Todd Thompson.

Under the terms of a plea agreement, the prosecution and defense each will be able to make its own recommendation for sentencing.

Hardin is free on bond.
