A Leavenworth man had been scheduled to be sentenced this week for taking indecent liberties with his foster daughter. But the sentencing has been continued until January, according to court records.

Floyd W. Hardin Jr., 38, pleaded guilty in August 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.

Sentencing had been scheduled for Wednesday. But court records show that sentencing was rescheduled earlier this month. Sentencing is now set for Jan. 16.

Hardin is free on bond.
