Yes, other counsel are correct - it appears that he is scheduled to be sentenced. There is no special abbreviation in the criminal justice system for SENT - accordingly it probably means "sentencing."
I hope you found this response to be helpful. If so, your clicking "helpful" and/or "best answer" helps my Avvo rating and would be appreciated. This answer is merely my personal view on the subject and is not intended to constitute legal advice nor does it create an attorney-client relationship. Further, my response is based upon the limited facts that were provided in the question and therefore my view might well be different if I was informed of additional or different facts or circumstances. Moreover, I am only licensed to practice law in the state of New York. You should not take any action or refrain from taking any action in reliance upon my view set forth herein, rather you should consult counsel who is licensed to practice in the state having jurisdiction over this matter.
It could mean that your friend has been convicted and a sentencing hearing has been scheduled.
I would want to look at the document you refer to. It may mean he is going to be sentenced.
Most likely this means sentencing. Why don't you ask your friend?
