Sentencing delayed for man convicted of sexually assaulting 9-month-old girl
Forum Communications Co. report
When 41-year-old Michael Frederick Schmidt of Hastings was convicted in September of first-degree criminal sexual conduct of a 9-month old girl, he was ordered to undergo a presentence investigation and a psychological investigation.
That order is still to be completed. At Monday's sentencing hearing, Schmidt's attorney, who he had apparently fired, then rehired, indicated that Judge Joseph Carter's order had not been fulfilled.
