    I had court yesterday for a criminal law matter to be sentenced for a goods in custody charge which I pleaded guilty to, but the judge adjourned it for 2 weeks. Why would he do that?

    Hi Hudson,

    I assume you didn't ask for the matter to be adjourned? Which Court were you in?

    Regards,

    Nick

    Any number of reasons.

    Did you self-rep?

    Use that time to get yourself references and into any programs that might assist on sentence. Engage with Community Corrections if that is required.
