OXFORD -- A federal judge has rescheduled the sentencing of a man who pleaded guilty to possessing child pornography in Columbus. 


Noel Everett Sumrall was indicted on the charge in August 2012. He pleaded guilty earlier this year. 


His lawyer asked for a delay in the sentencing, which had been scheduled for Monday. 


Sentencing is now set for July 29. 


His lawyer wanted more time for an expert to consider Sumrall's "propensities for child sexual abuse and possible diagnosis of his proclivities." The information was to be provided to the court and probation services. 


Sumrall is charged in U.S. District Court in Oxford.
