BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - A federal judge has delayed the sentencing of a former Vermont selectman who admitted in a plea deal that he plotted to distribute cocaine and oxycodone in 2014 and 2015.

The Burlington Free Press reports (https://bfpne.ws/2k3BuAK ) sentencing was delayed on Tuesday for Bernard Savage, of Alburgh, and his wife, Patti. A new hearing wasn’t immediately scheduled.

Bernard Savage faces a sentence of up to two decades in prison and a $1 million fine after pleading guilty.

His attorney on Tuesday said she might be missing recorded meetings Bernard had with a confidential informant and investigators.

The judge suggested the lawyers talk with investigators to see whether anything is missing.

Patti Savage pleaded guilty to possessing oxycodone in exchange for a year of probation.
