TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - A federal judge has delayed sentencing for a Kansas metal finishing business and its owner while he mulls over arguments and decides on his proposed findings.

U.S. District Judge Daniel Crabtree said Monday he would enter an order later in the case against C&R; Plating and owner Kevin L. Cline.

Cline and his company have admitted discharging untreated wastewater into a city sewer and submitting fraudulent samples and reports to conceal the dumping. They pleaded guilty in December to introducing pollutants into the water treatment system of the north-central Kansas community of Minneapolis.

The U.S. attorney’s office says the judge indicated at the hearing that this was a complex case and said it was better to get it right than do it quickly.

Another sentencing hearing will be scheduled.
