CHEYENNE, Wyo. — A man convicted of committing sex crimes against a child at F.E. Warren Air Force Base in Cheyenne is asking a federal judge to delay his sentencing hearing for a few months so he can qualify for a military pension.

Wyoming Army National Guard Lt. Timothy Wells was convicted in federal court in October of sexual exploitation of a child and other charges. He faces at least 15 years in prison, federal prosecutors say.

Jim Barrett, one of Wells' lawyers at the Federal Public Defender's Office, recently asked U.S. District Judge Alan B. Johnson of Cheyenne to release Wells from custody temporarily and push his scheduled sentencing hearing back from next Tuesday until April so he can finish 20 years of military service necessary for a pension.

AF Times

So, this guy, who was found guilty of committing sex crimes against a child, is asking to have his sentencing be put off until April, so that he can get his 20 year pension.

Ummm ... wow. The nerve of this guy.
