LANGLADE COUNTY, WI (WTAQ) - Former Antigo football coach and elementary principal John Lund is having his sentencing delayed for dealing drugs.
The 48-year-old Lund was supposed to be sentenced March 6th.
But at a court hearing Tuesday, a prosecutor cited medical reasons for delaying the matter to April 5th.
Lund struck a plea deal just before he was supposed to go on trial a month-and-a-half ago. He pleaded guilty to one count of manufacturing marijuana with the intent to sell it. Six other counts were dropped.
The state recommends a six-month term in the county jail and 3 years of probation. A Langlade County judge will have the final say.
Lund was accused of helping sell pot to teachers in Antigo and Merrill. He resigned after he was first charged over 13 months ago.
Authorities said the school drug ring was part of a larger business between Wausau and Bass Lake which also sold cocaine, and about 15 people were charged.
Most were teachers who got deferred prosecution agreements for using the drug. One defendant was given six months in jail. Four others had their cases pending at last word.
