we may not be ready for the sentencing, we need more time for the PSI, the memorandum & other things, can an attorney or will the judge allow for a later date for the sentencing??
Car / Auto Accident Lawyer
depending on the facts. The court will determine if it's reasonable to continue a sentencing hearing. The legal term is judicial discretion. If the court ordered a psi and it's not completed it's reasonable to expect a continuance. Good luck.

If the psi is not done, most likely.

Yes, especially if the PSI isn't done. Because it is the government who does the PSI, it is important for any defendant to express true remorse about the circumstances he was in and the crime that was committed.
