Sentencing for the former Cornell University student that pleaded guilty in June to federal gun charges has been pushed back a month.
Charlie Tan was scheduled to be sentenced in October but will now appear in court November 19th. In accepting a plea deal, Tan pleaded guilty to two counts of making false statements and purchasing a firearm with the intent to commit a felony.
In February 2015, Tan asked a friend to buy a shotgun at a Walmart in Cortland. Later that night, he used that gun to shoot his father three times. He was charged with second-degree murder but the charge was later dismissed for lack of evidence by the judge in the case after a jury failed to reach a verdict.
When sentenced, Tan faces up to 25 years behind bars.
