The sentencing of a former Mason County sheriff has been delayed because he hasn't written a mandated letter of apology.

Circuit Court Judge David Nibert postponed David Anthony's sentencing Monday.
The 42-year-old Anthony pleaded in March to misdemeanor charges of brandishing and firing a weapon near a dwelling. Anthony also pleaded no contest to fraudulent schemes and embezzlement. He faces up to three years in prison on all counts.
Anthony, who resigned as sheriff in March, was ordered by the court to write a letter of apology to county residents and to those who served under him. At Monday's sentencing hearing, Nibert said Anthony hadn't completed the letter. He resent sentencing for May 21 and ordered Nibert to finish the letter by then.
